"Recent research shows that our brains need downtime from technology. In fact, technology is known to increase levels of stress which makes it difficult to concentrate. Too much technology blocks creativity. Downtime is important and necessary, because it allows our minds to process information and remember it. When the brain is constantly stimulated, you prevent this learning process." -From this NYT's article.
I'm planning on unplugging a little this long weekend, hope you have a good one whatever you do.
