Digital Moderation

You know what I learned from my one week digital cleanse?

Moderation.

After a self-mandated abstinence from digital media I had almost 1000 blog feed posts waiting for me. 5,000 tweets and numerous G+ posts.

I redeemed my time by reading physical books, right-sizing the material stuff I own and dabbling into PhP, MySQL and Apache server systems.

So great was the temptation to consume media that I had to bury the pervasive Google apps in a folder deep down to the kernel.

I used Firefox for a week because Chrome has those tempting apps built in.

From here on out, I will moderate and limit my intake.

Check the feeds once a day. Check email twice a day.

Now it is time to declare digital bankruptcy and clear the notifications and alerts and the feeds. Starting from zero…now.
