For now I plan on making some small changes into my life so that when I finally take the plunge and do the full detox I will be ready. Some of these changes will include not using my phone one hour before bed (this one will be hard!) and not using my phone around others and focussing on them instead which is something I already try to do.
Could you take the digital detox?
