In our always-connected world, I think it’s getting more and more difficult to manage our work/life/digital boundaries.
I think the answer is two-fold: (a) having a hobby or project or workflow that is non-digital; and (b) setting up boundaries for when we do and don’t stare at the screen.
Resting and working with boundaries is, I think, a key component to living in the digital age. And I think this is so important because it’s a never-ending battle: The internet is never going to become less addicting; social networks are never going to be come less active; news and entertainment channels are never going to dial it down; and amazing and interesting things are going to continue to be created.
