Do you turn on your mobile phone as soon as you wake up? Do you spend your time at home before returning from work? Do you follow social networks even while traveling from work to home?
If you answer these questions affirmatively, you are the ideal candidate for digital detoxification.
Here are some tips on how to perform “cleaning”.
1. Learn to have fun without the included monitor in front of you
Find some other fun, for example, read a book, solve a crossword, or simply spend some time in silence. Be grateful for peace and quiet and give your brain a chance to rest for at least a few minutes a day.
2. Turn off all the lights that you have in your home
Researchers at Harvard University have proven that using a mobile phone at bedtime can disrupt the secretion of melatonin, a sleep hormone, and at the same time it acts as an antioxidant in the human body, but also stimulates immunity.
A short and poor quality sleep can cause serious health problems in the long term. To help your body get the well-deserved rest, try to do it in darkness and eject the electrical appliances from your bedroom.
3. Decrease with virtual acquaintances
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks bring us together with acquaintances and friends, and we become part of a digital community, but they are also meaningful to poorly use our free time.
It’s really strange how one can spend hours looking at someone’s photos, news, or announcements. So try this – the next time you join one of the social networks, set the alarm to ring for example 10 minutes, and when it turns on immediately stop and then go out for a walk.
4. Spend more time in places where your mobile phone is not allowed
It can be a studio for exercise, fitness, zoo, etc., go to the pool, yoga, meditation or walk in monasteries.
You can also visit creative workshops where your hands and mind will be covered with something other than your mobile phone.
We wish you a successful digital detoxification because your mind, your body and your health deserve it.
