Technology addiction is real. Do you want to get rid of it? Check out the best apps to break free from your smartphone and spend more time in nature, or with friends.
People spend so much time looking into the screens of their laptops, tablets, and smartphones that it is no wonder that most suffer from headaches on a semi-regular basis. So what if we didn’t have phones? What if technology wasn't our main focus and we could spend some time off grid? We'd be looking at nature! What is more beautiful than green pastures or a starry sky? Suddenly, life without cell phones seems a lot more tempting. You might want to consider doing a no phone for a day challenge and find a nature retreat to rest your eyes and relax your soul.
In addition, reports show that instead of connecting us, social media tends to make us feel more lonely. Perhaps spending a day without a smartphone could help you reconnect with the real world. Yes, believe it or not, meeting people without technology is still a realistic possibility. You, too, can give it a try. Go out, attend an event, spend a day without your cell phone, and try meeting new people without the aid of social media and dating apps. Leave your phone at home and treat life as an adventure.
So, how long can you go without your phone? If you are employed - not for very long. Work-related emails tend to arrive all day long, not allowing you to relax for an instant. While not having a phone is probably not an option, it is still good to carve out a portion of your schedule to spend time with your family and truly enjoy life. While the debate is still ongoing about the relationship between cell phones and child development, it is definitely good to commit to going off grid from time to time, and devote the attention and energy to your loved ones. Occasionally going phone free could be the best thing you can do during the weekend.
