So that's what I've done, a digital detox.

On Friday night at 11:00 pm I put both of my phones and my laptop in a draw and didn't retrieve them until 8:00 am on Monday.  57 glorious hours free of distractions and significantly improved sleep....

Minimalism isn't about suffering and giving up the things you love, it's about making more room for the things you love by ridding yourself of the things that cause you worry, but very little joy.
