Daniel Sih notes the impact of constant technological connection upon relationships, productivity, health and other areas of life. In a world that seems to expect our constant presence and availability, he shows how we can reclaim time to restore and refresh ourselves.

"...we need space from the online world to think deeply, rest fully, and reconnect with people in our lives, and this requires a new set of productivity skills and practices. Daniel Sih is a productivity expert, award-winning author and CEO of Spacemakers, a productivity consulting group in Australia and Canada. His first book, "Spacemaker" won six international awards, including the Axiom Business Book Award (USA) in 2023 for Work-Life Balance and Time Prioritization, and an Australian Business Book Award in 2021. His newest best-selling book, “Raising Tech-Healthy Humans,” is a practical guidebook to help parents reset their children’s tech- and life habits.
