On Digital Minimalism, Loneliness and the Joys of True Connection - Study Hacks - Cal Newport
I suspect that there are multiple effects of the mobile and social waves that negatively impact people, and I truly do believe one of them is that our brains are always occupied. Solitude is an amazing thing, and something we take away from ourselves regularly. I have often wondered if this isn't part of the surge in people meditating over the last few years.

> To fill every moment of solitude with a droning hum of twitter timelines and pull-to-refresh swipes reduces the nobility of our social nature.

Indeed. 🧘‍♂️
