What is Digital Detox


Digital detox refers to a period of time to refrain from using any electronic connecting devices such as smartphones, tablet, electronic gaming, television,  computers and digital enabled devices.

Why Digital Detox


Technology is incredible and the benefits are huge in so many aspects of everyday life. However, being able to unplug and have some time away from the screen will leave you re-energised and more in touch with the world around you.

Benefits of Digital Detox

Doing a digital detox regularly will have some great benefits on your wellbeing. Here are some of them:

Cognitive Development

The break from digital devices will allow our brain to relax, focus, listen, observe, and response better. This is essential for learning environment and for our cognitive development. Children will gain tremendous benefit for the growing up with knowledge and good sense of observation. 

More Content & Calmer Person

It has been scientifically proven that where people have taken a break from technology and the participants are almost always surprised to find themselves less stressed because of it. When you are on your phone or absorbed in your emails, you are not living in the present. It is only when you open your eyes to the here and now that you realise how easy it is to miss out on the good things around you.

Productivity

You will be more productive when you can unplug and disconnect from constant checking of your social media channels. You will gain extra time with face to face interaction with your peers, friends, family and colleagues in real time.

Healthier Relationships

A relationship is healthier and stronger with face to face communication and doing things together, or during mealtimes. 

Physical Health

If your eyes are glued to the screen, you are probably sitting or lying down. A growing obesity problem in is partly because of a lifestyle tied to the couch staring at a screen. It is not only terrible for your lower back and neck, it is also bad on your waist line. Unplug, go outside and get the blood moving. You will be amazed how much better you feel.

Mental Health

You will feel better with balanced mind with more time for connecting to the real world and people around you. It is because you no longer rely on social media channels. Indeed, you will find inner peace and positive strength through digital detox.

Improved sleep

When your body knows it is time to sleep, your brain releases a chemical called melatonin, which helps the body relax and prepare for some shut-eye. Science has shown that when you look at a screen before bedtime, your brain is tricked into thinking it must remain alert and awake, preventing melatonin from being released. You do not get a good night sleep if you use your phone immediately before going to bed.
