Actor-Comedian Aziz Ansari on Disconnecting From Internet, “Stopped Using Emails 4 Years Ago”

Indian-American star Aziz Ansari is the most popular for playing Tom Haverford in ‘Parks and Recreation’. The actor-comedian did get into some real controversy at one point in his life. Thus, his talks about being off social media sound just. Ansari has revealed he’s totally disconnected himself from the internet and stopped using email four years ago.

He shared: “However many years ago, I kind of started turning off the internet and, you know, I deleted all social media and all this stuff, and I’ve slowly just kept going further and further. I stopped using email maybe like four years ago.” Aziz described his decision to disconnect from social media and e-mail as a “mental diet”, reports

He told Kevin Hart on Sirius XM’s ‘Comedy Gold Minds with Kevin Hart’: “It all kind of … it’s almost like I kind of started thinking about, you know, everyone thinks about their diet and what they eat – at a certain point, it’s also about thinking about your mental diet and what you’re putting in your head. Whether it’s like, oh, looking at the same four websites, constantly checking The New York Times 50 times a day. At a certain point, yeah, that’s not really helping.”

Aziz – who – said: “I mean, look, I know all this stuff is like, oh yeah, I’m in a position where I can do that and have, you know, whatever certain privileges to be able to pull it off. An assistant or whatever – but all that stuff I do I think helps me get more done, kinda taking care of stuff or whatever, whether it’s working out or meditating and all that kind of stuff.”
