Tech Check, Time for a Digital Detox


We’ve all grown dependent on the tech tools we have in our work and life.

However, is that technology helping or hindering you?

Take a moment to ask yourself- are these devices and apps supporting my work and life or are they simply wasting time in my day?

Consider a digital detox. Try one or all….

  • Close the multiple tabs on your computer. Turn off the cell phone. Perform focused work without device distractions.
  • Don’t be reactionary to the pings and dings you hear and feel. Turn off notifications and schedule time for email, phone calls and social media.
  • Delete unused apps on your phone.
  • Disconnect from devices and screens 60 minutes before bedtime.
  • Designate certain hours of the day or a day of the week as tech free.
  • Use a traditional alarm clock. Charge your phone away from your bedside.
