When was the last time you switched off for 24 hours?
About 75% of the world’s population now has access to a mobile device, and for many of us, our life is in our phone. We check it for news, sports scores and weather. We constantly receive notifications through Facebook, Twitter, email or texts. We watch music videos, movies, and play video games from Angry Birds to Candy Crush. We send messages to people halfway across the world and to the person in the next room. We consult our phones for notes, our daily calendar and GPS. We read work documents and memos. We scroll through Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook feeds. In short, you don’t own your phone; your phone owns you. We have developed a psychological dependence to electronic media because we must “stay connected” with other human beings.
A digital detox could be what you need. Digital detoxing is a great way to stay productive and balanced in a wired world. Day to day in the digital world, we face constant demands for our attention. And if we don’t let ourselves recharge and reboot, this can mean we quickly burn out or become inefficient. By doing a digital detox, we give ourselves chance to step back temporarily. When we return, recharged, we’re more productive and have a different perspective. We’re also likely to have at least one great idea while we’re ‘not thinking about it’. It gives us chance to get back in tune with our own rhythms and the rhythms of nature, rather than trying to ‘keep up’ with the pace of the digital world. It lets us dictate how we spend our own time, rather than spending all our time answering other people’s demands. A digital detox gives us chance to spend time on the things and people who matter to us.
A digital detox is switching off all mobiles, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and computers for a minimum of 24 hours.This enables you to spend screen-free time doing whatever you enjoy and a chance to recharge and rest.
----------Digital Detoxing is good for your health and relationship------------
