I posted this recently on my personal facebook page, but as I deactivated both of my facebook pages soon after this, many of you may not have seen the message. So, here you go ….
I would like to let you all know that I am starting a “digital declutter” process. I will be deactivating my personal facebook page as of today, including my relatively new Primal Bob page also. I have recently started reading an excellent book – “Digital Minimalism – Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World” by Cal Newport. It has become fairly obvious that I have been spending an inordinate amount of time each day staring at screens – either my laptop or cellphone. The use of technology has definitely become a type of addiction, and it is surely not a healthy habit. I need to start making some changes ….
My goal with trying this Digital Minimalism approach (direct quote from book) is:
“A philosophy of technology use in which you focus your online time on a small number of carefully selected and optimized activities that strongly support things you value, and then happily miss out on everything else.”
So, for the coming two-three months, I will endeavor to stay off facebook entirely, on both my laptop and phone which are my primary technology devices; and I have also deactivated my Instagram account. For now, I will keep my WhatsApp account open, so that I can communicate easily with family & friends, via messages or calls.
Yes, I recognize that this is only a small first step in my “digital declutter” journey. As I progress with additional steps/actions, I will try to share via my website, primarily via blog posts like this one.
For those of you who currently contact me via facebook or messenger: If you would like to contact me directly, you can also simply send me an email. For personal messages, I prefer to use – email@example.com, and for health-fitness coaching purposes, I prefer to use – firstname.lastname@example.org. You will find that I usually respond to emails very promptly.
Additionally, for those of you here in Bangkok, feel free to call my cell phone or send a text message.(+66 81-935-8017). OR – you can reach me another old-fashioned tech way – on Skype (bob.connor7)

Please feel free to send comments, questions, and your own thoughts – happy to have a dialogue on any topic! I will continue to publish regular blog posts, sharing my insights along with appropriate educational articles-links, regarding a variety of topics related to health-wellness and fitness.
I will be making a number of revisions on my website in the next few months, and I will likely rejoin/reactivate my current facebook pages in early August – possibly announcing a new online health coaching program as a special offer to all facebook friends. This will be an affordable, viable, attainable plan – with the promise of many direct benefits for your personal health and fitness. If you are consistently dedicated in following the advice/recommendations, you will gain many benefits and positive outcomes-results.

BE HEALTHY & BE HAPPY!
