listen, observe, and response better. This is essential for
learning environment and for our cognitive development. Children will

sense of observation.
More Content & Calmer PersonIt 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.

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.

Physical HealthIf 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
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 sleepWhen 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.
