With today’s world running highly off many forms of technology, it may seem utterly impossible to fully detach from technology. While technology may play an integral part of your day to day life and working ways, it doesn’t have to be a part of your weekend downtime. You can detach from technology for a weekend or a week and feel rejuvenated rather than stressed out. Here are some of the benefits of detaching from technology:
Increased Awareness of Surroundings
As each day passes and you stuff your eyes, mind, and head into your smartphone or computer, you start to miss your surroundings. Your child could have taken their first step and you missed it, why? Because your head was attached to technology. Too many moments are missed as we stuff our eyes so far out of reality with these technological devices that our family can fall apart without us even noticing. It is time to start detaching from technology and having an increased awareness of your surroundings. Life will feel so much happier when you start being more aware of what’s right in front of you versus what’s out there in the digital world. You matter and your world maters, detach from technology to get back in touch with your surroundings.
Reduce Health Problems
It has been proven time and time again that eye strain symptoms occur when you spend too much time in front of technology. From headaches to dizziness to feeling exhausted, all of these symptoms occur when you are stuck in front of that computer or smartphone too much. When you detach from technology you reduce health problems that occur from too much technology. Learn to be aware of health problems arising and detach before they get too bad.
Become More Involved
When you let go of the distraction technology brings about, and spend a full weekend with your surroundings you are more involved. When you are more involved, you are happier and so are those that matter to you in life. That next email or Facebook update is nowhere near as important as the benefits you get when you detach and become more involved in your actual life. Those who have detached from technology on a regular basis have started to reap the benefits of being more involved with their family and build a stronger bond than those who refuse to detach from technology.
Feel More Relaxed
The last but certainly not the least benefit of detaching from technology is that you start to feel more relaxed. Life no longer runs on internet time. That update and constant notifications popping up can start to feel quite stressful for your mind. When you detach from technology, your mind, and soul beings to relax and you start to have a happier, healthier and more upbeat life where you are involved with the immediate surroundings. Life is so much better when you detach from technology, even if you do so for just one weekend a month.
So why not give it a try!
