What would life be like if we were totally isolated, no contact with others plus we didn’t have the constant demands of the digital world to contend with? I think most of us would get a bit stir crazy after a couple of hours but I expect we would all benefit from the peace and quiet and the feelings of relaxation that came with it. Now I’m not stupid enough to advocate both physical and digital isolation for everyone! On the positive side it would really help us unwind and find our balance but I don’t think the government or your boss is going to pay for you to do that! I do however think that self-isolation isn’t as negative as some people suggest it might be.
