Mindfulness and the Internet

One of the things I ask our teacher trainees to do - as a kind of experiment on themselves  - is to practice pratyahara (sense withdrawal) by staying entirely off the internet for a day.

Most people have a really hard time with that. Particularly those who are heavy users of social media.

I think if having occasional internet fasts as a form of brain detoxification: limiting my online exposure is a way of preventing too much gunk building up again.
