Excellent article on regaining your attention.

My own thoughts on this in recent days has been along the lines of:
"Life is too short to be spent looking at screens"

Some steps I've taken:

* I switched off various "screen" devices left running at home and office.
* I pulled together a script (not my own) to run a "Slow Proxy" [1] to
implement this idea. This is already working well! This mail is a
product of my stopping being busy and sitting down to record this
improvement.

Cheers!
