This past week I deleted Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter from my iPhone, leaving them only accessible from my PC. I realised I had succumbed to digital distractions and had fallen for the engagement nudges of these Social Media sites - I needed to wrest back control. I now have no home screen notifications begging my attention and I check the sites only once a day. Unsurprisingly, I haven't missed anything of significance. FREEDOM!!!

It also means we gain headspace to think deeply about things that matter and be more engaged with those we work, live, and play with.
