Publisher's Summary

If you don’t know how to put the phone down and that's ruining your life, keep on reading.

Do you check your phone every five minutes for updates? Do you find yourself staring at your screen after you just published a new Instagram post? Are you wondering how many likes you already collected, or whether your crush has commented on it? Are you glued to your phone? Are you mentally prompting people to interact with your content?

And then this: You need to find something important on your phone or computer, but while digging through the clutter of 64 GB loaded with pictures and unnecessary applications, you get lost and forget what you’ve been looking for in the first place.

You, my friend, are addicted to your devices and to digital channels.

Think of the amount of time you’re wasting away, time you could be putting toward something much more empowering and exciting.

FOMO is a real thing, and it can crush your life. Because of FOMO:

  • An average person spends 5.4 hours per day on their phone! (That’s the amount of time needed to learn CPR) 
  • The smartphone is the last thing most people look at before falling asleep (and the first thing they check when they wake up in the morning)
  • 22 percent of the people in the 18 to 29 age range check their phone every few minutes 
  • Rather than meeting others in the real world, 33 percent of teens communicate with their peers online 
  • 3.1 billion people use social media across the globe 
  • 50 percent of people drive while checking or even updating their social media profiles

That’s a scary world we live in, isn’t it?

Social media and digital content control your life, dumb you down, and make you depressed in the process. Isn’t it time to take the reins and rediscover the meaning of true happiness?

In Digital FOMO: Forget It, Delete It, you will discover:

  • Eight unbelievable reasons why we become addicted to social media 
  • The massive cost of owning a smartphone - it’s a five-digit number 
  • Why you feel empty, even if you get all the social media validation in the world 
  • Digital minimalism: making good use of devices and content without letting them take over your life 
  • What will change in your life after you do a seven-day or a 14-day digital detox 
  • 26 very practical things you can do to start controlling digital clutter and reorganizing your world 
  • One secret that will transform your long-term relationship with technology 
  • Sustainable strategies for kicking FOMO in the butt forever

And much more!

You may think that you’ll never be able to live without your phone. You may think that all of your happiness, even your identity and worth are concentrated there.

Once you look up from the screen to acquaint yourself with the real world and all the amazing, hidden opportunities, you will never want to go back.

Overcoming FOMO will give you more time that you can dedicate to yourself, your passions, your loved ones, and will even help you become a better version of the person that you are right now.

So slow down, and switch the phone off right now. If you want a simple and easy-to-follow guide to live life without being a slave to social media and digital devices, scroll up and buy now.

Social Media Is Toxic

In today's world, one of the biggest problems is the excessive use of social media. Once you understand the impact it has on your life you should start to question your behavior. Of course, social media can be used as a business marketing tool but even then we should set up some rules for ourselves to get a healthy amount of screen time. I love this audiobook as it includes digital minimalism, digital detox, and much more. It's overall a great book about the philosophy of technology usage.

A Powerful Book!

I love that this book focuses on minimalism digitally, without giving it up all together. Social media can be all consuming, however, there’s freedom in disconnecting at times. I definitely have some people I can recommend this to, and feel that this was such a great reminder to take those breaks. I’m so ready to take these breaks after listening to this book!

Free yourself from an addiction.

Waste of time on social networks. This is the new generation in the world. I bought this audiobook because my girlfriend is often on her smartphone, which is really a way to ruin her relationship.

I wanted to be equipped to have knowledge and help her detox from his phone and spend his time elsewhere.

I liked the 26 handy tips to start controlling digital clutter and rearranging your world, and other great strategies. I let you discover them. I recommand it!

DIgital Minimalism well done!

Lets' get a digital detox! Social media can be a distraction, replacing real relationships with artificial. Let's read a book(or hear one), disconnect from the digital planes. My fave quote in it is "Shakespeares to delete or not delete" and "Focus on growing "stuck out in my mind, Thank you Vivian and Laurel did a good job too.

Digital detox

The case that the author presents is pretty solid and backed by some fascinating yet appalling numbers. Just like needing a vacation or just a change of pace, that also should be considered for our digital connection.

Great Read!

The book is an excellent resource for helping you get rid of your social media addiction. The author details the leading social media sites that people spend a lot of time on and why spending too much time on the sites is detrimental. There are also various tips on how to decrease your use of social media.

Much need unpulg

It’s 2020 and I am still finding myself waste away time and fade into the never-ending rabbit hole of Instagram, Facebook, and of course the youtube rabbit hole. Hahaha, I all honesty i was very hesitant to start listening to this audiobook, and to be honest I was in denial that I was simply addicted to my phone. It was only when I actually look at my on-screen time did I see that I was spending on average 38hrs per week on my phone. I know it’s embarrassing anyway, this audiobook helps me understand why I was so addicted to my phone, it provided my practical ways to actually disengage from my phone and break a bad habit that I had for as long as I can remember. Nothing in this book is far-fetched, its very realistic and the method which the author suggests are very effective. Since listened to this book my behavior has changed slowly over time, it was instant and it’s still a working progress. My screen time is now 24 hours per week which is nothing insane but it’s an improvement and im being honest, im sure the weekly usage will continue to decrease, and as Continue applying things that I have learned the number will go further down.

This is a super book and fun listen.
