What is a digital detox?

“A digital detox is when you completely abstain or intentionally reduce your time using electronic devices like smartphones, computers, TVs and tablets. The idea of a digital detox is to disconnect from the online world to focus more on the present moment without distractions”. –

Making sure you stay healthy is really important, and there are a few things you can do to keep your body and mind in good shape. Eating healthier, getting enough sleep, and doing regular exercise are all good things to do. When you feel stressed out, practising mindfulness and meditation can help you relax and think more clearly. Taking care of your body and mind is essential for living a happy and fulfilling life. So, make time for “me time” and do things that make you feel good!
