Digital balance

In the FT Weekend magazine this week, Tim Harford has set out his experiences with ‘rebooting’ his relationships with digital media and platforms. He logged out of Facebook and Twitter, closed down or deleted a wide range of distracting apps from his phone and carefully monitored how he used other information tools. I found his account of the benefits accrued and how he has sought to find a proper balance of what he really needs to connect to (he is an author and column writer after all) and what he can dispense with, insightful and very helpful; I have been doing something similar for around a month now.
