Digital detox is a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices such as smartphones or computers to reduce stress, stress and focus on the real world.
Here are some tips for digital detox:
● Separate work and personal time. During work, do only business, without interruption on social networks and instant messengers. If you are on a forced weekend, replace work with something useful for yourself - learning a foreign language, creativity, a hobby. The best rest is a change of activity.
● Don't procrastinate. If you can't get out of a prolonged viewing of videos on YouTube, Instagram or TikTok, and your personal and work have already begun to suffer from this interests - then it's time to practice digital hygiene. Try to minimize your "screen time" or even ban the use of your smartphone except for business tasks or communication with loved ones.
● Exercise and warm up. Even an elementary set of exercises - joint warm-up, a few squats and bends - will improve blood circulation and overall mood.
● Do not sit on the phone while eating and before bed. If the mobile phone literally crawls into your hand, use a box that blocks radio signals to combat digital addiction. Modern problems with the arrival of technology require the same modern solutions. As practice has shown, simply turning off the phone and "airplane mode" does not help - it is necessary, at a subconscious level, to develop a new habit of temporary abandonment of the smartphone.
Well, judging by the tags, you already have an idea of what it is =)
If you feel that "digital life" has fettered you and you can't do anything about it - of course you should give it up for a week. I don’t think that for longer - to maintain communication, enjoy music and learn the latest news is still necessary; it's just that now you'll take your time more seriously.
In general, digital detox is a good practice not only in the field of technology. Subjective experience suggests that any changes to the meticulousness of the usual way of life are only beneficial.
