There is no doubt that Technology has brought us some amazing tools we can use on a daily basis to help simplify our lives. From cell phones, social media, FaceTime, Zoom meetings, tablets, internet, we have it all. We use it every day and love its wonderful benefits, however, it is becoming obvious that we are developing an addiction to Technology and an unhealthy attachment to it. When was the last time you were away from your cell phone more than 15 minutes?
We are going to explore what is unplugging and ways it can benefit your life.
What is Unplugging
When you unplug from Technology, you put away all of your devices in another room and forget about them for a period of time. This means turning off your smartphone, smartwatch, TV, tablet, and any other device you might have.
The Benefits of Unplugging
Improve Quality of Life
Now that all of the electronic devices and "distractions" have been put away you can start enjoying the world around you and improve the quality of life. You now have more time to participate in outdoor activities, socialize with friends & family, join groups, meditate, take a class, read, exercise, or just relax. The importance of having time for YOU cannot be emphasized enough.
Have you ever grabbed your phone to quickly check a Facebook post, then get stuck for 30 minutes on Instagram with no intention of ever going on the app in the first place? You are not alone! This is what these platforms are designed to do and that's why it's so important to turn it off. When you unplug, you're not focusing on your phone notifications or catching up on a show on Netflix, you are instead focusing on how tired you are. You go to bed early, get a good night sleep, and wake up more refreshed.
Feel Centered and Grounded
Unplugging from Technology for a while can help you feel more centered and grounded in the present moment, rather than on the potential likes or shares, and a little more able to tackle the headaches life throws at you.
Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Unplugging from Technology is like a reboot for your brain. You are not bombarded by dozens of emails, constantly looking at news alerts, scrolling through channels to find something to watch, and your mind can slow down, relax, and be in the present moment.
Ways You Can Unplug
There are several ways you can start unplugging today to improve your life:
Unplug From Work
Unplugging after work can make a big difference in your quality of life, health, and happiness. Make it a habit to stop any work related tasks, including checking emails & answering calls, after hours. This will help you recharge and feel fresher when beginning work the following day.
Decide in advance how much time you are going to spend watching TV, checking emails, answering texts/calls, posting on social media, and stick to it. This will help you free up your time so you can start doing the things you love.
Join A Retreat
A health and wellness retreat is a great way to unplug, detach from the outside world, and reconnect with yourself and nature. It can also help you feel more present, centered, and grounded and give you a chance to travel & take a vacation.
A great way to unwind in the evening is to soak in the tub, read a book, light some candles, put on some relaxing music, and meditate. You can also sign up for a class, join the Gym, or go for a walk.
Technology is everywhere these days and is really hard to avoid, but it doesn't mean it has to dominate our lives. Unplugging on a regular basis can be so healthy and can help you improve your health & well-being.
