You have a love-hate relationship with your phone. Yes, you. Some days you use it—others, it uses you.
And most days, it feels impossible to disconnect. From anything.
Your focus turns to frazzle. The weight of digital stress slams into your chest. You bury your head in your phone while real life whizzes by—just outside of your periphery.
And it disconnects you from others. Being present with your family, your kids, and your friends becomes impossible. Interpersonal skills go extinct. Social media increases your anxiety. So do the hundreds of notifications that demand immediate attention every day. You feel as if you just. can’t. keep. up.
Our physical and mental health suffers, and we lose precious time. We spend an hour on our phones before we go to sleep.
And we wake up a decade later, unsure where all the time went.
The good news: It is possible to find tech-life balance to help live a fuller, happier life.
And you don’t have to go cold-turkey in order for that to happen. You don’t have to toss your phone away or Marie Kondo your apps or even go on a 7 day tech-free retreat (which can be rewarding, but is not a long-term solution).
It’s the small things that make a big difference.
With slight adjustments to your social media game-plan, learning good phone hygiene + etiquette, and being more present in key life situations (when’s the last time you enjoyed an experience not through your screen?), you can wake up more refreshed, less stressed, and start to regain your focus instead of losing twenty-three minutes every time you pick up your phone. And more importantly, you can strengthen the important relationships in your life - at work, with friends, partners, children, and yourself.
Just one percent better a day in any of these areas is 37x better a year.
At Digital Detox, that’s what we’re all about. We want you to have the skills to help you slowly bring your life and phone use back into balance—so technology can help you be a better parent and friend and partner and colleague. Digital Detox has been recognized globally for over a decade, and we're here for you. We are you and we're in this together.
