WHAT, WHY, HOW AND WHEN
In recognition of Digital Detox Day we wanted to write a post about what a Digital Detox actually means and why they are so important.
A digital detox is a period of time when a person refrains from using tech devices (phones, laptops, tv’s etc) and allows you to check out from social media, emails and other day to day communication. A digital detox allows one focus on real life, socialise and take part in other activities (painting, running or other hobbies) without distraction. The idea being that by withdrawing from devices for a short period, people can let go of the anxiety which comes from regular connection.
For many of us, being connected to the world via our devices is part of our everyday life which we just need to check out of.
Technology has scientifically been proven to contribute to stress as it’s a common feeling that we can’t live without or devices or ever go fully off grid. Whilst going off air for any extended length of time can also cause anxiety, a period of simply living without interruption is extremely important and proven to have positive results on mental health.
A Swedish study has found that technology amongst adults has lined to sleep problems, depression, ADHD and increased levels of stress.
The question therefore remains – what can we do to help manage this?
At Rollo London, we want to encourage people to keep writing. As Will Self said; “Always carry a notebook. And I mean always. The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper you can lose an idea for ever.”
So, go write, dream, create, remember, organise, scribble, doodle in your Rollo.
