Wired, Tired and Distracted? Here's the Book We All Need ...

Anne Lim reviews the 2022 Australian Shortlisted Christian Book of the Year, "Spacemaker: How to Unplug, Unwind and Think Clearly in the Digital Age" by Daniel Sih.

"Spacemaker: How to Unplug, Unwind and Think Clearly in the Digital Age is the most influential book I have read this year. As someone who has noticed my mood slump as I endlessly scroll social media, and who immediately reaches for my phone as soon as I wake up, I already knew I was addicted to digital devices, leaving me “wired, tired and distracted”, to use the author’s phrase.

So I was ripe for the diagnosis of this book that overuse of digital media is damaging our productivity and relationships, and we need to regularly unplug our devices to think clearly, rest, breathe and make space in our lives for the things that really matter."
