So What Can We Do About It?

  1. Dedicated hours of detox — Just dedicate some time in your calendar every day to consciously break away from all the distractions that induce stimulation.
  2. Give yourself a quota of time per day — There are a bunch of apps that can help you with this.
  3. Do boring work — Just to train your brain, just try out some boring activities like watching the clock, and reading the privacy agreement of an app.
  4. Replace distractions that cause stimulations with non-stimulating distractions such as taking a walk, or reading a book.
  5. Meditate — of cause!
