Let’s be real – every single one of us should go on a technology detox.

Technology has taken over our daily lives to the point of having panic attacks if we are not up to date on what’s going on with our friends or with the world.

God forbid you go 5 minutes without checking your phone, right?!

It’s like the worst feeling in the world.

Well, I recently challenged myself to go on a technology detox and I dare you to try it, too!

1. Spend More Quality Time with You

Without taking a technology detox, how else are you supposed to get to know yourself better?

It’s extremely difficult to focus on your own goals and dreams if you’re always living vicariously through your friends or family…put the phone down for a while!

2. Take on a New Activity

Maybe you’ll find out that you love to cook or that you’re actually really good at a sport.

Spending less time on your phone, tablet, or computer will give you the opportunity to learn something new or try something new!

Those of you in college: this is such a life changing experiment to get more involved around campus rather than just reading about it through your University’s website or Twitter account.2

3. Get Fresh Air

Live your life in the real world, girl!

Even though there’s a chill in the air as winter approaches, take the dog for a walk or drag some friends to walk along the beach, or go spend some time at a local park.2

Make good use of the beautiful world around you!

It’s tempting to want to take pictures of everything and post it on Facebook, or make note of where you are 24/7 on Twitter.

Why not go somewhere and enjoy it for YOURSELF instead of focusing so much on only doing things so you can broadcast to the world.
