Fasting from Digital Distraction

Fasting from Digital Distraction

by Michael Feeley October 12, 2023


WE ARE FORTUNATE to have nearly unlimited access and ease to information with the internet.

At the same time, the noise and speed of digital distraction can be too much when you’re diverted by technology (smartphones, laptops, tablets) and probably involved in other activities simultaneously.

You’re surfing the internet, shopping, watching movies and videos, reading, checking grammar, sending emails, and attaching to social media. These choices may not be inherently hurtful but can often result in limited attention and quality engagement with others, your work, and your studies.

> How much genuine learning and care for people is actually happening?

> How many meaningful connections are you indeed a part of?

> How much does it matter to you?

Fasting from noise – choosing to be present without a phone or tablet interrupting, setting time limits for digital activity, and deciding where your time will be best spent have excellent effects.

The profound choice to talk with other people about their lives, work, questions, needs, fears, concerns, happiness, and successes makes a difference.

Human understanding is a pleasurable art and choice. The sincere desire to know takes time and work. It’s called emotional labor. The time spent caring and feeling can create more significant change for you and others.

Live – in-person connections – having access to people – humanity – is not a type and send distraction.
