Synopsis

The Digital Diet The 4-step Plan to Break Your Tech Addiction and Regain Balance in Your Life by Daniel Sieberg

START THE NEW YEAR WITH A NEW YOU!

Does your heart flutter when you see the flashing red light on your BlackBerry?

Do you feel guilty if you haven’t recently updated your blog?

Is the first thing you do when you get home from a holiday to upload your photos to Facebook?

Technology is increasingly taking over our lives and with so much available to us, it’s easy to surrender control to it. Our digital lifestyles are more of a weight on our shoulders than we know – many of us can no longer focus on a single task or face-to-face conversation without wanting to reach out–or retreat–to the virtual world every few minutes, or even every few seconds.

It’s time for a digital detox.

Daniel Sieberg’s 4-step, 28-day plan will get you started straight away. It isn’t about cutting out technology all together, but about taking a step back and reincorporating it in a healthier way.

Step 1//Re: Think:

Consider how technology has overwhelmed our society and the effect it’s had on your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Step 2//Re: Boot:

Take stock of your digital intake using Sieberg’s Virtual Weight Index and step back from the device.

Step 3//Re: Connect:

Focus on restoring the relationships that have been harmed by the technology in your life.

Step 4//Re: Vitalize:

Learn how to live with technology—the healthy way, by optimizing your time spent e-mailing, texting, on Facebook, and web surfing.
