JWT Intelligence posted a few weeks ago its Top 100 things to watch in 2011.
A lot of them are to my mind relevant but one in particular has caught my attention.
N°25: Digital Downtime
Studies showing the benefits of taking time away from the multi-screen environment are encouraging people to De-Tech for hours, even days at a time. Look for more employers, schools, media outlets and parents to endorse digital downtime. These mindful breaks from digital input will be intended to relieve stress and foster creativity.
Even if it seems obvious that quitting your screen for a few hours or days can help, taking action is a little harder. The fear of being surrounded by information if you miss a single day in the digital world is present for a lot of people, including me.
Has any of you already tried to take time away from all these screens? What has it changed to you?
