Digital Detox Challenge
“If you wanted to invent a device that could rewire our minds, if you wanted to create a society of people who were perpetually distracted, isolated, and overtired, if you wanted to weaken our memories and damage our capacity for focus and deep thought, if you wanted to reduce empathy, encourage self-absorption, and redraw the lines of social etiquette, you’d likely end up with a smartphone.” – Excerpt From: Catherine Price. “How to Break Up with Your Phone”
While technology addiction is not formally recognized as a disorder in the DSM-5, many experts believe that tech and device overuse represents a very real behavioral addiction that can lead to physical, psychological, and social problems.
“Detoxing” from digital devices is often seen as a way to focus on real-life without distractions. By forgoing digital devices temporarily, people can let go of the stress that stems from constant e-connectivity.
A digital detox refers to a period of time when a person refrains from using tech devices such as smartphones, televisions, computers, tablets, and social media sites. If you want to know more about:
