Day One: Unplug
In the current climate, it may seem like the best and most obvious thing to do is to watch absolutely every news update and read every article, and of course that’s fine if it makes you feel more informed and therefore better. However, we would also suggest that in a time where there is SO MUCH information to digest and a lot of it new and daunting, it might be a good idea to unplug.
This can be for an hour a day, an evening, every evening, a day, a week or three! When you unplug from technology, you lock away all of your devices and forget about them. It doesn’t just mean turning off your smartphone, it also means turning off the television, powering down your computer and shutting down any other electronic devices. It’s all about enjoying and appreciating the world around you.
Social media is always a place of information and opinions but if you feel that it's becoming a negative space, unfollow people who are adding to this or mute things for the time being and take a break. The same goes for the news, in this moment, the Government has put us in lockdown and until that changes, you could easily use this time to detox from popular media and give yourself a break from the current situation. Unplugging from technology doesn’t always have to be about electronics either. It can include taking a step away from work or any stressful environment. This is a stress-free zone!
