Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Out of isolation

We live in a hyper-connected world. Through the streets, in schools corridors, practically, everywhere, we see people looking at their screens. I thought people where focusing their attention on themselves, egotistically, but it may be something deeper.

Now, I think they’re being consumed in their attention and gradually becoming isolated. This seems living a paradox of being isolated in a hyper-connected world.

The problem is not in our incredible ability to be connected. But the excess of connection.

Getting out of isolation might mean bringing disconnected moments to our life. We can do it by experiencing more analog moments in our lives. Even the simplest ones like building a puzzle, playing an instrument or a simple walk in the woods.
