Check out this video on the down side of the net from philosopher Alain de Botton and art curator Sophie Howarth’s School of Life – and see how much older people are doing right. We’re better than young people at doing a lot of the things recommended here to keep a balance between our online and offline lives, like:
1. Connecting with the natural world – we tend to walk, not too fast, for exercise, which allows for looking at what’s around us.
2. Speaking to people face-to-face – like we did for all the decades before the digital age dawned.
3. Taking frequent breaks from staring at the screens of our computers and phones.
