How do you unwind?

We live in the digital world. Did you know that the average person checks their phone once every 12 minutes?

I spend on average 14–15 hours in smartphone per day, every 3 minutes someone is calling me and I receive 5 messages in a minute, and I have about 15 notifications from my social media accounts hourly. So imagine almost 5000 hours every year with a phone. Isn’t it insane?

Sometimes we all need a digital detox. My business depends on social media because you have to be social to make people know you. But I propose taking a social media detox. I do it about 3 times a year, usually when I’m on vacation and when I’m having transatlantic flights. Here are some quick steps to start your digital detox:

  • Choose 1-3 days in a calendar
  • Deactivate your social media accounts
  • Don’t take your electronics to bed
  • If you can not avoid entering into social media, remove the applications from your smartphone
  • Apply this plan every three or four months

This digital detox is a real thing! It will help you to vent out, become more focused and to clear your mind. Try it and share your results and insights.
