Can you abstain from tech? From your devices? From social media?
Just the thought of being alone without your phone can make you anxious instantly.
You feel naked when you realize your phone is not with you.
In case you forgot your phone, you panic, and the sympathetic nervous system is being activated.
Ever heard of a digital detox? You probably did.
The idea sounds fantastic but scary and pretty much impossible in a practical sense.
That’s at least the opinion of the majority when we think about the concept of a digital detox.
You don’t need to stay away from your phone or social media for one month.
Not even one week. Not even one weekend. Not even for a day.
You don’t expect from yourself to go to the gym 4 times a week when you haven’t gone to the gym for years right.
Small steps, that’s the key.
Watch the video and grant yourself just one hour of peace and quiet.
