It is the start of 2022, and with every new year comes the loft ambitions of new year's resolutions.
If one of your resolutions is to spend less time on your phone, or looking at screens, then you are in the right place, because in this episode we will look at digital detoxes and how you can implement them.
To do this, we are speaking with Andrew Selepak, a Social Media Professor at the University of Florida.
In this episode we discuss what a digital detox is and what technology it usually involves, how a digital detox can be realistically implemented without it negatively impacting our work, or even social connections, and the parallels between digital detoxes and food diets.
Selepak shares why going cold turkey with a digital detox is unlikely to be successful, why vacations are a good setting to implement a partial digital detox, and why turning off notifications and removing social media apps is the best way to start a detox.
He also explains why our use of technology shouldn’t be seen necessarily as an addiction, like a drug, but a tool that needs to be the correct way.
Additionally Selepak shares how a non-self imposed detox from his phone during a trip in Ireland taught him the importance of disconnecting, and how many of us fall into the trap of taking numerous pictures on holiday, with the ambition of posting on social media, instead of experiencing the trip in the present moment.
And finally, we discuss the role meditation can play to help limit our time with technology.
