Digital detox – removing yourself from the distractions of modern life
Nowadays, our lives are busier and more hectic than ever before, not least because of the amount of technology we seem to be ruled by. Taking occasional time out from digital devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers is absolutely necessary for rebalancing the mind and destressing.
The fact is that in a world fueled by social media and smartphones, we’re expected to be available and on-call 24/7, and that’s simply not healthy for our brains or bodies. The evening is the perfect time to disengage from the devices we hold so close during the day and let our batteries recharge. If the evening doesn’t suit you, weekends or even holidays work too.
Why not try switching off your smartphone and laptop 2-3 hours before you go to sleep or setting your phone to ‘airplane mode’. This break will give your mind the chance to recover from all the events of the day. Your skin is greatly affected by stress levels and will thank you for this break. When your mind is at ease, your skin will be too and this can be considered just another part of your skin care routine.
