22 Ways to Digitally Detox

These Anti-Technology Concepts Provide a Break from the Digital World

— September 17, 2015 — Tech
With apps and gadgets designed for everything from getting dressed in the morning to falling asleep at night, there are few who live completely anti-technology lifestyles. For this reason, the digital detox concept has become increasing popular as a way to offer a temporary break from the pressures of being constantly connected.

To encourage mindfulness about daily technology use, some of the smallest gestures include switching to a phone wallpaper that says something like: "Stop looking at your phone. Look around you." People are also holding themselves accountable by using apps like the Digital Detox Challenge, which has users pay up if they are unable to keep away from a phone for a certain length of time.

Beyond devoting a short span of time each day to getting away from technology, there are also more lengthy digital detox programs and events to help people remove themselves for days, weeks and months at a time. For instance, Cabela hosts a 'Disconnect Day,' while Camp Kitigin for adults boasts an entirely screen-free experience in nature.
