The article particularly brings up the importance of the “ultradian cycle,” which is “the 90-minute oscillating cycle that governs our patterns of rest and activity, our ability to concentrate.” Devices schism this cycle, which creates stress. In order to prevent this, disconnect from devices whenever possible (especially at night), maintain good healthy posture, and take time now and then to just goof off and daydream (which is how good ideas are born).
