Digital disconnection to regain your wellbeing in a natural environment

In a world where we are constantly connected, taking a break from technology is more necessary than ever. This is where the digital detox comes in, which involves taking a break from screens, notifications and being on your phone and other devices all the time. This disconnection, so complicated nowadays, not only leaves you time for yourself but also has benefits for your wellbeing.
During the summer holidays is a good time to plan activities that allow you to put all your attention away from technology, living in the present and spending good times with whoever you want, and most importantly, disconnecting from the routine of your day to day life!
Discover everything you can do in Andorra to recover your wellbeing in a natural and peaceful environment.

The importance of disconnecting from online activities

Technology has transformed our lives and in many ways in a very positive way, since it allows us to stay connected with those we love the most and, among other things, it provides us with information or entertainment instantly. Even travel apps are very useful during our holidays!
But it is also true that we are too busy and sometimes we are not able to switch off. For this reason, it is important to plan moments of disconnection, whether it is a retreat, a holiday to a remote place, or simply to disconnect for a few hours during the day.
Taking these digital breaks are very beneficial and allow our brains to rest and recover.

Benefits of a digital break

What is a digital detox? We could define it as a more or less long time in which the person stops using all digital devices, whether smartphones, computers or tablets. It can be for a specific period of time or limit the use during certain hours of the day. The aim is to reconnect with the world around us, which can help improve personal wellbeing.
Some of the main benefits of digital detox can be:

– Improve sleep

Reducing exposure to blue light from screens before bedtime has been shown to help us get a more restful night’s sleep.

– Reducing activity

Constant exposure to notifications, emails and social media can become very tiring and give us the feeling of always being active. A digital break is the solution to take a break from these constant stimuli.

– Increase productivity

By eliminating distractions and reducing the time we spend on screens, we can increase our concentration on other tasks.

– Improve relationships

Disconnecting from devices allows us to be more present and aware of our surroundings.

– Decrease technological dependence

Finally, learning to manage the hours we spend with our devices and doing activities outside the digital world will help us to value our own time more.

Tips for disconnecting from digital devices

– Set time limits

Set specific times for the use of electronic devices and make sure you stick to them.

– Create technology-free zones

Designate areas in your home where electronic devices are not allowed.

– Practice alternative activities

Spend time on activities that do not involve technology, such as reading a physical book, practising yoga or enjoying a walk outdoors observing nature.

– Use time management tools

Use apps that help you monitor and limit your screen time.

– Plan your disconnection

Set aside a day or even some time during the day to disconnect completely. Take advantage of this time to devote it to activities that give you pleasure and capture your full attention.
