Day to day in the digital world, we face near 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.
Our ability to stay balanced gives us a chance to get back in tune with our own 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. A digital detox is good for our health and our relationships.
By doing a digital detox, we give ourselves a chance to step back temporarily and return recharged, being more productive and having a different perspective on life.
