Your body needs sleep in order to rest. You need downtime in order to rejuvenate. You need to disconnect and unplug in order reconnect with yourself.
I’m at a a coffe shop that allows me to be online for 2 hours, but then they provide a warning that says that after 2 hours that they are going to disconnect me from the Internet so that I might reconnect with the real world.
By default my phone pushes and fetches email. You can set up rss feeds to come to you. Kids today are so much more connected to the web and they will only know a life that is connected to the web. We need to teach them how to disconnect. We need to model it.
It is healthy to disconnect from the web. I got an idea – set an alert on your phone to remind you to.
