About the Book: From the “Marie Kondo of Digital” comes a thoughtful book about realigning our energies, increasing intentionality, and prioritizing our well-being in the digital age. It’s time we choose joy over fear. Empowerment over anxiety. JOMO over FOMO. How do we get there? By taking up good burdens. The things we’re most proud of in life – the child we’re raising; the marathon we completed; the major project we hit out of the park – these required all of us: all of our attention, all of our loves, all of our effort. Could we control the outcome? No. Were we all in? Hell, yes. These effortful pursuits are what digital well being pioneer Christina Crook calls “good burdens”. In thoughtful prose, Christina Crook’s insightful follow up to the acclaimed The Joy of Missing Out makes the case for increasing intentionality in our day to day lives, unlocking the building blocks of joy, and offering concrete solutions for flourishing in the digital age. Using historical data, real life stories from leading mindful tech leaders and rich personal narrative, Good Burdens advocates for a realignment of our energies, online and off, towards effortful pursuits –cultivating relationships, community, and creative projects that bring lasting joy.
