Every day, it seems our lives become more and more crowded by a new appor social network. YouTubeFacebookTwitter and an ever-growing list of platforms demand that we check them constantly to stay in touch. The technologies that at first felt like a recreational part of our lives sometimes feel like a chore.

Media theorist Douglass Rushkoff addresses this information overload in his book Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now. This month, Mashable‘s social book club MashableReads selected Present Shock as its non-fiction pick. As we read the book this month, it’s made us think about how little time we devote to disconnecting from our busy lives.

We want to know how you take the time to live in the moment. Send us anInstagram of your favorite way to disconnect for the chance to be featured onMashable. This could be an image of your favorite analog technology or a video of you practicing yoga. Don’t forget to tag your submissions with the hashtag #MashReads.
