If you spend as much time hanging around “productivity hack” websites as we do at PETS+, 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 singing in a choir, taking care of a fix-it job, or even just a manual chore, and enjoy the benefits.
