In his book, Powers offers some tips to help you find and dismantle any technological overload in your life. Here are a few of his suggestions:
Set up rituals in which you focus on one person or one idea at certain times of the day -- where you go off without a cell phone and say, "I'm going to have a conversation right now with this person in front of me."

Set up a space in your house that is a technology-free zone -- a digital refuge, so if you are feeling overloaded, you can go there to take a break.
