Editor's Letter: When Unplugging Is Unreasonable

To me, the prospect of shutting off my phone for hours on end induces more anxiety than fielding urgent work emails at 9pm. The concept of a digital detox, while nice in theory, simply doesn't jibe with our modern existence—nor does the notion that technology is categorically bad for us.

It's something that hits really close to home for those of us at The/Thirty HQ, since we're internet-dwelling editors who also happen to be passionate about wellness. Why can't we have both? And better yet, how can we use technology to bolster a healthy lifestyle, instead of only worrying how it might take away from it?
