Putting their digital devices away and taking a step back is achievable for a few people. But for most of us, having a job and social networks makes it almost impossible.
This article by Sophia Epstein, writing for BBC, makes the following points:
- A digital detox requires shelving technology almost entirely.
- It involves taking a break from screens, social media and video conferences for multiple days.
- The goal is to reduce stress and anxiety and reconnect with the physical world.
- And despite no scientifically-proven benefits from tech abstinence, many people are convinced of its merits.
