Taking a break from technology is a great way to detox the mind.
Think about it.... when was the last time you turned off your cell phone, put away your laptop and stayed away from the internet for 24 hours? Honestly, it's been far too long for me!
Tips for the busy fashionista
Put your computer away 2 hours before bed. Staying away from that bright computer screen for a couple of hours before bed can be very beneficial for sleep. The artificial computer light can reduce the levels of melatonin in the body which is an important hormone in your body responsible for sleep (and many other activities).
Meet up with a friend (in person). A recent study has shown a possible negative correlation between the amount of time a person is online the feeling of wellbeing. Just a simple reminder that nothing replaces the energy and love felt with direct communication.
Get out in nature! Nature provides countless benefits to the mind and body. A study found that people exposed to natural environments vs. urban environments had better directed focus afterward. Hmmm, maybe taking an extra 5 minutes to breathe the fresh air outside is easier to justify.
