These days, we’re spending a lot more time behind our screens. In 2021, we’ve been clocking five to six hours of phone time a day, according to the data site Statista. And this doesn’t even factor in Zoom calls, television time and the other times where we swap the “little screen” for the “big screen.” If you’re feeling the effects of this tech on your mental health — think brain fog, poor sleep, low productivity, etc. — consider a digital detox! While it’s impossible to unplug completely, the information below will help you take a 24-hour break from your devices to reset and improve focus. You’ll also find some activities to try while you’re offline. See for yourself how time off the grid can improve your mental well-being!
