Our brain capacity is limited. Our ability to digest new information dwindles with each piece of new information we take in. That's why people are taking deliberate breaks away from the Internet. The only way to fight feed-based culture is to turn it off completely, whether that's through a 5-minute meditation or more intensively, through a 5-day digital retreat.
This may sound obvious but the a fundamental way to reset the brain is to sleep more. Our brain works like a dishwasher draining unnecessary filler when we sleep. If we're stoic enough, we can also choose to sit there and do nothing.
‘Always on' is a recipe for a clouded, confused brain that confuses multitasking with hard work. At the same time, the Internet is the most amazing invention since the railroad. At the end of the day, maybe we should all just daydream more and create our own memorable fantasies.
