The Distraction Addiction
The Distraction Addiction: Getting the Information You Need and the Communication You Want, Without Enraging Your Family, Annoying Your Colleagues, and Destroying Your Soul | Alex Soojung-Kim Pang
3 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
The question of our time: can we reclaim our lives in an age that feels busier and more distracting by the day? We've all found ourselves checking email at the dinner table, holding our breath while waiting for Outlook to load, or sitting hunched in front of a screen for an hour longer than we intended. Mobile devices and the web have invaded our lives, and this is a big idea book that addresses one of the biggest questions of our age: can we stay connected without diminishing our intelligence, attention spans, and ability to really live? Can we have it all? Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, a renowned Stanford technology guru, says yes. THE DISTRACTION ADDICTION is packed with fascinating studies, compelling research, and crucial takeaways. Whether it's breathing while Facebook refreshes, or finding creative ways to take a few hours away from the digital crush, this book is about the ways to tune in without tuning out.

For @kaye —a post about anything to distract you! This is my husband‘s face when I told him wearing his huge headphones over his hat looked silly. Then he looked at this picture and agreed that it looked a bit ridiculous. 😂 #postsofdistraction

I found this online and I thought to share. This is so me trying to read while thinking about my 2018 Reading Challenge.

It's raining in London. Of course. And I'm having a lazy morning in bed.

Are you ready for the New Year!? I can't wait for this year to be over!!
