Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It's the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.

As I write this, on a screen, I often think about how much screens affect our behavior. There are many things with modern technology that I find appalling, the addiction of screen time and companies that are encouraging you to spend more and more of your time on their apps is pretty gross.

Digital minimalism is a practical process of shedding screens and toxic apps from your life. One of the biggest takeaways from this book for me is reducing the notifications on your phones, tablets and computers. Little distractions that take your attention and cognitive load.
