Unplugging: Leaving Technology Behind (for a few hours)

unplugging

Technology is our friend

It's our all-knowing, life-optimizing friend who lives in our pocket. And just like with all friends, sometimes we need some space. But this can be hard to come by- you put your phone in a drawer but there is the tablet on the dresser, the laptop on the bed and the TV on the wall. Sometimes we need to practice self-discipline and truly unplug. 

A formula for technology detox

Here are some things that aren't so ambitious as reading a book, but will still help you to find some peace of mind and pleasure away from the internet. 

  • Cook for yourself: from scratch. Devoting time to purchasing, preparing and consuming your own meal is a relaxing and rewarding process as long as you don't pick a recipe that is out of your skill-level!
  • Hang out with friends: phone off the table. Phones have a way of becoming a third party just by their inanimate presence. And then they start chirping mid-conversation to everyone's distraction.
  • Legs up the wall: an amazing yoga technique for relaxation. Lie on your back and inch your legs up a wall until your buttocks are pressing against it. Let the blood flow and the stress drain out of your feet.
  • Explore your neighborhood: walk, people watch, observe. The world is, in reality, so much wider than our phone's can ever know.  

Starting small

It doesn't matter if you've got 20 minutes, 2 hours or 2 days, every chunk of time is just as valuable as the next.  Technology is often a crutch that let's us escape from our own thoughts and live through the memes of the day; in this way, being away from your phone and alone with your thoughts is an amazing refresher. Call our office in Milpitas today and let's start finding time to go unplugged!
