New Year. New Me. The standard phrase that circulates at the end of one year and into January. Resolutions get made. Resolutions get broken and then we spend the rest of the year wondering why.
This year, instead of focusing on creating a new me, I am focusing on taking a digital detox before the year is up and seeing how this will impact me going into 2021!
Now don’t get me wrong, 2020 became the year that we spent online, with national lockdowns and the global pandemic, we spent more time online! In fact, according to Ofcom we were spending an average of 4 hours a day online & using twice as many video calls to keep in touch. However, this ends up having an impact on one’s mental health.
That is why instead of drawing up resolutions to become fitter, leaner and more productive in 2021, why don’t we focus on ourselves and coming offline for a week can help put things in perspective.
We will cover a few reasons why a digital detox can have wonders on your mental health as you prepare for 2021 (or as some call it 2020 part II)
