2 days ago, I 'lost' my hp for a day and I do find that there is a 'burden' lifted from my shoulder and I do wonder what kind of burden was lifted? it was the freedom of being bind by your own machine...the burden of having to check your social media. So yeah, it was a 'free' day for me :D
'I guess this is what I realised as well'
"Other friends try to go on long walks every Sunday, or to “forget” their cellphones at home. A series of tests in recent years has shown, Mr. Carr points out, that after spending time in quiet rural settings, subjects “exhibit greater attentiveness, stronger memory and generally improved cognition. Their brains become both calmer and sharper.” More than that, empathy, as well as deep thought, depends (as neuroscientists like Antonio Damasio have found) on neural processes that are “inherently slow.” The very ones our high-speed lives have little time for."
