Information Detox

vintage radioI'm currently on day 2 of a self-imposed 5 day information detox. This means I'm not going on social media, avoiding self-help articles, and steering clear of celebrity gossip sites. If I didn't already not watch the news I would be refraining from that as well.

I realized while reading my personal bible (read: not The Bible) that I spend way too much time consuming information. When you work online it can be a slippery slope to logging hours of unnecessary surfing all the while thinking you're soaking in useful information. So far my brain has appreciated the mental break, but it's been difficult breaking the habits of muscle memory that include typing F-ENTER and quickly scrolling through Facebook.
