Sabbaticals are not the solution

What is it about digital addictions that make us think the occasional break will suffice?

Weekly sabbaticals make now sense, sure. But less frequent sabbaticals are powerful. Take a week off from—whatever, email, social networks, etc.—and your addictions are made obvious. Nothing surprising there. The question is: Do you then consciously bring the addicting drug back into your life?

That’s not hyperbolic soapboxing; That’s a real question for you to consider.
