Upcoming Event: Introduction to Digital Minimalism

Meetup_Event

Toronto’s Digital Minimalism Meetup Group is hosting our first event, Introduction to Digital Minimalism!

We will be utilizing Cal Newport’s new book to explore the following three questions:

  1. What exactly is digital minimalism?
  2. What are the three core principles of digital minimalism?
  3. How can we best adopt digital minimalism into our lives?

We will also discuss practical tips and ideas for digital declutter, followed by a 30-day digital declutter challenge for the month of July.

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.

Most of us turn to our digital devices often because the alternative sucks.

Toronto’s Digital Minimalism Meetup Group

TODigitalMinimalism

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!

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.
