Derek Beres, in his article published on the blog “Big Think“, explains how our creativity is fading away due to our addiction to data and information.

Here are four suggestions to disconnect mentioned in the article:
1. Make a long walk—without your phone—a part of your daily routine
2. Get out of your comfort zone
3. Make more time for fun and games
4. Alternate between doing focused work and activities that are less intellectually demanding
