Digital Detox Fridays

One of my intentions for 2016 is to create my own Digital Detox Fridays. Friday is already my day off from client work, in the main, though there is a fortnightly exception as you will read. The idea was that I will extend my day off to being offline completely. Here’s what I’ve learned so far from just two Fridays as a recovering digital addict.

I took a gap year in 2011 and then it extended a bit because I had no idea how I wanted – or even if I wanted – to return to the world of work again – ever.

My definition of working for a living, by the way, is exchanging time for money. As an […]
