Put the Phone Down, Take an “Amish Hour,” and Reap the Benefits

If your job requires a lot of screen time, you can boost your productivity by turning back the clock.




Take An Amish Hour

If you spend as much time hanging around “productivity hack” websites as we do, you’ll likely soon come across the idea of “taking an Amish hour,” which is recommended to help you get better sleep or get back in touch with your artisan roots. The idea is to reject digital technology for a short interval and enjoy the resulting lowered cortisol levels and clarity of mind. So, slot an “Amish hour” in your schedule at a time when you’re likely to have had too much digital stimulation, turn the clock back, and do something totally non-tech, like an hour of hands-on bench work, singing in a choir, or even just a manual chore, and enjoy the benefits.
