The Low-Information Diet

The Low-Information Diet

Most information is time-consuming and unnecessary. You should be critical with what you look at, read, or watch daily.

The low-information diet:

  • Go on a one-week media fast immediately: no newspapers, magazines, news websites, television, and unnecessary web surfing.
  • Only consume information for something immediate and important.
  • Practice the art of nonfinishing. If you’re reading a poorly written book/article, don’t continue to read it.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
