Once upon a time, a high school student tells a group of her peers and adults that she has deleted all her social media accounts for an unspecified period of time. She explains that she is spending too much time on social media, comparing herself to people online.
Everyone nods in agreement relating to the side-effects she listed for her decision.
‘What do you do instead?!’ one peer asks, ludicrously.
We all laugh.

Are you looking to take back control of your time and attention? SIGN UP HERE to receive my FREE weekly newsletter with 5 ideas to bring digital wellness to your daily life.
Toronto’s Digital Minimalism is a group for digital minimalists, and individuals interested in practicing digital minimalism and digital wellness.
Using Cal Newport’s definition, digital minimalism is a philosophy of technology use in which you focus your online time on a small number of carefully selected and optimized activities that strongly support things you value, and then happily miss out on everything else.
We hope to create a space for likeminded individuals to meet and exchange ideas to radically transforming their digital lives!
