Digital Detox for Your Health in Pranburi, Hua Hin
Is your body crying out for some kind of ultra-vacation – a time to recharge your system and to feel completely disconnected from regular life for a while? Are your modern electronic conveniences creating more busyness and fatigue than they are making your life easier? Perhaps you also feel a need to reconnect with your real-life relationships. Consider incorporating a digital detox into your next holiday. Enhance the benefits of taking a break from all technology during your down time.
A digital detox is a relatively new concept that busy professionals ought to consider. Just as we all need a break from work, as most of us (hopefully) indulge in at the end of the workday and on weekends, we need to also separate from technology. Our brains need a chance to recharge from the seemingly infinite barrage of updates and information.
As symptoms of technology overload have become apparent, including anxiety and loneliness, environments that support disconnecting have begun to sprout up. A digital detox option is appearing in wellness retreat centers. It has also been incorporated into resort hotels, such as Aleenta Resort in Hua Hin, Thailand, combining the benefits of a vacation with time away from technology.
Overwhelmed, Isolated and Addicted to Technology
In our modern, connected world we have become more dependent on our digital tools. Yet these tools, which are meant to simplify our lives and free up our time and energy to do other things, are making us feel more frantic and depleted. Even during our down time, including evenings, weekends and vacations, we find ourselves still busy and distracted. The tools that provide us with continuous access to internet, social updates, and instant messaging, continue to demand our attention when we should be resting or spending time with loved ones. It can seem impossible to truly get away.
Many of us are experiencing symptoms of technology overload. The lack of clear boundaries between work and pleasure, and the continuous stimulation during down time, can lead to signs of stress, such as fatigue, decreased immunity, and feelings of overwhelm. In addition, we are feeling a lack of face-to-face emotional connection. Evidence shows that people feel isolated and lonely in today’s world and that most in-person engagements tend to be interrupted by technology, depleting the quality of those experiences. The time we spend connecting online is depleting our capacity to engage in real-life relationships.
On top of that, the idea of separating from technology for a time may bring on an additional set of symptoms comparable to separation anxiety. Not only are our relationships with others being negatively affected, we are uncomfortable being alone with ourselves without the distraction of technology.
We are addicted. And we need guidance in separating from our technology dependence. The digital detox concept has evolved to chaperone people through the process of separating from technology and to encourage more engagement with the real world, ideally in a beautiful and supportive space. In the digital detox setting, all participants commit to setting aside their devices and opening up to real-life engagement.
