Lifestyle: Do you need a digital detox?

The first thing you look at when you get up is your mobile? Do you enter your social networks several times a day? If a notification appears on your phone, can't you wait to see it? Is it the last thing you look at before going to sleep?   

So a good first step is to set small goals that will gradually detoxify you from that addiction. Technology will continue to evolve and will be increasingly present in our lives. And this does not have to be a problem, on the contrary, it must improve our lives.

To avoid its negative effects, ask yourself about each app or electronic device if you really need it and if it makes your life better. Because only the one that helps you in something concrete is positive for you.

And for all those that only entertain you, it is necessary to establish healthy habits, use time limits, and learn to make safe use of them.

Steps to carry out a digital detox plan

The goal is not to stop using the devices since you will always need them for work or personal reasons. Even so, you can set certain hours in which not to be aware of notifications, messages, etc.

You can put your mobile in airplane mode whenever you get home, or go out with friends or go to eat. These are decisions that will make it easier for you to meet the challenge.

How about going back to enjoying old hobbies? Or eat while having a nice conversation? It's never too late to enjoy those little things again.

Get rid of your smartphone addiction

To avoid temptations, keep the mobile in a place where you cannot see it.

 Once you've only left the essential apps, turn off notifications for the rest. No light, no sound, no pop-ups. This will avoid being continuously aware of the devices.
