Chances are you’re reading this slouched over a desk, waiting in line for lunch, or just as you’ve laid your head on your pillow. People are using their electronics now more than ever. In fact, recent studies show that 90% of Americans use digital devices for two or more hours each day. Which isn’t surprising in this digital age of constant connection and modern conveniences, but it’s also extremely important to recognize the benefits of taking a break from your electronics.
Studies show that a digital detox, or a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices, has proven to be beneficial for relationships, productivity, physical health, and mental health too. If you find yourself overly stressed or unproductive, it might be time to unplug.
