The 24-Hour Rule: The Life-Altering Impact of Pause In a Hyperactive World

Charles Fred

What are the long-term consequences of living in a constant state where only fleeting moments often separate stimulus and response; where a device and its provocations overwhelm our cognitive abilities to inquire, analyze, and evaluate? Best-selling author, entrepreneur, and researcher, C.L. Fred introduces a simple notion that can change a course of action, improve and strengthen relationships, reduce stress and even save lives. Based on 12,678 days of research, the 24-Hour Rule helps create a barrier against the persistent and perilous stimulus of a hyperactive world. This safety zone, as Fred highlights, sometimes only requires a few seconds, in other situations, a night of sleep. But a deliberate pause, especially by people in a position of authority, can have a lasting and positive impact.
