Do You Need a Digital Detox?

Do You Need a Digital Detox?

The Digital Detox, California based retreat center, has created a nostalgic getaway for adults. Camp Grounded is a “Summer Camp for Adults” where attendees trade in their cell phones, tablets, and computers for an, “off-the-grid weekend of pure unadulterated fun.” In fact, even talking about work is forbidden on this tech-free escape. The good news is you don’t have to jet off to California to benefit from detoxing your digital habits.

Follow the tips below to find out how unplugging can help you recharge.

  • Leave Your Cellphone At the Door:

    Create a phone-free policy during meetings. Ask everyone to turn their phones to silent, or better yet off; this tactic will prevent distractions during the meeting and allow everyone in attendance to truly focus on the matter at hand. There may be a time when you need to access information on your phone to share with the group. In this case, get in and out as soon as possible so you can return your full attention to the group.

  • Take Advantage of Tried and True Tools:

    From pen and paper to whiteboards and drawing pads, the blank slate these tools offers allows you to unleash your creativity in brainstorming sessions. Computers and tablets often impose limitations and you waste time trying to find the right program or make everything look just right. Unplug and watch as the ideas buzz around the room, capturing them the traditional way. Remember, you can always go back and type them up later.

  • Make Time for Old Fashioned Fun

    Don’t slip back into your old tech habits after hours. Put down the tablet, unplug the laptop, power down the smartphone, and do something that you enjoy. Read a book, go for a run, or do a fun activity with your family. Whatever you do, spend some quality time away from the screen. When you return to work, you’ll be refreshed and your creative juices will start flowing freely.

These are just a few items that we’ve found to help us detox and connect with the actual environment around us. What are your favorite ways to unplug and tune into the present? Share them with us; we’d love to hear from you!
