Professor Mirbabaie’s latest publication deals with the use of information technology (IT), which is having an increasing impact on society but also on the future of work. This is rooted in serious consequences that screen time can have on an individual's well-being, such as technostress, which is defined as "any negative impact on attitudes, thoughts, behaviors, or body physiology caused either directly or indirectly by technology." In this article, the authors demonstrate the rationale behind digital detox and the developments in organizational knowledge work that precipitate the increasing popularity of periodically refraining from the use of IT. Moreover, they propose a first conceptualization of digital detox to guide future research in IS and beyond.
