Part inspirational manifesto, part practical guide, Silicon Valley insider Tiffany Shlain shows how turning off tech for one day each week can transform your life and allow you to pay attention to what truly matters. Do you love how much easier technology has made your life-but hate how hard it is to put your phone down? You're not alone in feeling conflicted-and Silicon Valley insider Tiffany Shlain is here to help. The 24/6 Life is a flexible, straightforward approach to managing your time and priorities that will change your life. The '24/6 Method' suggests unplugging from technology one day a week. Shlain, along with her husband and teenage daughters, have been using the method for more than ten years, and have enjoyed greater concentration, increased relaxation, and more time to focus on the things that truly matter. The revolutionary approach is rooted in four simple steps: 1. Commit to getting your time back. (That's right, you are in control.) 2. Turn the screens off. (Yes, you actually have to do this part.) 3. Decide how you want to spend your 24 hours. (Reconnecting? Spending time outdoors? Day dreaming? Sleeping?) 4. Repeat each week. (And reap the rewards.) By disconnecting to reconnect, you are actively choosing to remove distractions and interruptions and replace them with renewed energy for what matters most: creating deeper connections with friends and family. Other benefits include higher levels of creativity and productivity, better sleep, and lower levels of stress. Shlain also weaves an inspiring history of the tradition of rest days across faiths and secular traditions along with well-known friends' accounts of trying out "24 hours without tech" for the ultimate introduction into this lifestyle phenomenon and the joy, connection, and balance it brings. Empowering and innovative, The 24/6 Life will show you how to get your life back and spend more time with the people that matter-instead of hiding behind screens.
