Detox From Technology

An important way to entirely switch off is to turn off your phone, out of sight out of mind.

The average person checks their phone once every 12 minutes, therefore it’s highly beneficial to use this time away to remove your mind from your phone.

Even if that means leaving your phone in your room and heading out for the day, it’s important to take time to enjoy the present moment without any distractions.

By taking a digital detox during your time away is an opportunity to reduce stress levels and focus more on what is going on around you, including interacting and making memories with your loved ones. 

The Perfect Time To Spend On Holiday

What is the perfect length of time to spend on holiday so you can fully relax?

Researchers at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands, set out to explore the effects of holiday length on health and wellbeing, and its relationship to positive after-effects.

The conclusion was that the perfect length is longer than eight days which is just the right amount of time to fully immerse yourself on your holiday in the Indian Ocean.

Often the first couple of days are when you are getting used to your new surroundings and getting a feel for the resort, then after you start to settle in and truly switch off and unwind…

Don’t Set An Alarm
