Shelly has just returned to work after a refreshing, much-needed vacation.
During her time off, she decided to leave her smartphone and laptop at home. She only took an old mobile device with her, which doesn’t connect to the internet, in case of emergency. All that mattered was relaxing by the beach and enjoying her vacation.
Coming back to work, she felt truly rejuvenated after this break. But after a few minutes in, she was back to her old habits. Constantly checking her phone, multitasking, and even interrupting her flow every time she heard a notification buzz.
She managed to relax only when she went on a “digital detox” mode. But can Shelly—and all of us—deny tech?
In this modern world, we rely on tech for everything. And digital detox means “going back to primitive times” when we used our phone only for… making calls. We could follow Shelly’s example and completely disconnect while on vacation. But on our day-to-day, (how) can we achieve digital detox?
