Our need to acquire information instantly makes us
reliant on our devices. However, all this screen time could lead to adverse
effects on us. This is why it's important to
take a break from our devices and go on a digital detox.
3 Reasons Why You Need A Digital Detox
The idea of a digital detox is simple: disconnect to reconnect! Here are 3 reasons why it is good for you:
Better work-life balance
Working from home has blurred the boundaries between work and personal time. So, take a break to reconnect with yourself and your loved ones.
Reduced social media stress
Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) is common among social media users. Simply unplug to avoid this unnecessary stress.
Improved sleep quality
The key is no screen time before bedtime. The blue light emitted from digital screens might interfere with the quality of your sleep.
How To Start Your Digital Detox
In this hyper-connected world, it's always healthy to do a digital detox once in a while. Here's how you can disconnect to reconnect:
Start with a digital blackout at the end of your workdays and slowly extend it to the weekends.
Turn off, tune out
Silence all notifications and enjoy some quality "Me Time".
Focus on personal growth
Learn new skills and find new hobbies to keep your mind active.
Spend time on yourself to improve your health and wellness.
We hope these tips will help you to pick up some healthy screen time habits. At AlA, your wellbeing is our priority and we are here to support you in living a Healthier, Longer, Better Life.
