Do you find yourself sneaking glances at your smartphone during a dinner date? If Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are taking up too much room in your life and starting to crowd out everyday pleasures, this book can start your digital detox. Digital minimalism asks you to make strategic choices about your technology to keep your screen time within reasonable limits and avoid the emotional pitfalls of social media. This means not only cutting out tech that isn’t making your life better, but also figuring out smarter ways to use the tech you still want to keep in your daily routine. There are plenty of good recommendations here for anyone who wants to free themselves from unthinking dependency on apps and devices.
