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!

Last year, Apple released the Screen Time app as part of its “digital health” initiative to address growing concerns around increasing device usage, smartphone addiction and social media’s impact on our mental well-being.

As much as it hurts me deeply to admit this, according to my Screen Time app, last week I spent 38 hours and 37 minutes on my phone with a daily average of 5 hours and 31 minutes.

That’s a full-time job.

To become a writer, I had to learn to interrupt, to speak up, to speak a little louder, and then louder, and then to just speak in my own voice which is not loud at all.

It’s been a while since I have posted a blog article.

I have been meaning to do so for quite some time now. Many ideas constantly clutter my headspace. Loud, obnoxious, and furious ideas begging to be released into the world.

Would the world care?
