What is the importance of ‘unplugging’ from social media and technology?

One radical response is to unplug and disconnect, live in the moment and concentrate on doing one important thing at a time. Try it for an hour, then for a day. You can even call your friends to.

Unplugging taking regular breaks away from your devices and putting limits on how available you are. The need to unplug is so strong there’s even a National Day of Unplugging, from sundown to sundown starting on the first Friday in March. But you don’t have to wait until then.

So, below are quick 5, hard-to-ignore benefits of unplugging: It relieves stress; It helps you bond better with friends and family; You sleep better; It sharpens your interpersonal skills; It improves your overall quality of life; Now that you know some super-cool benefits that come with unplugging, are you wondering. Finally, always keep in mind the immense value of taking time to unplug from work. Doing so will help you stay on the ball with the priority and make it. The Value of Unplugging—and Tips For How To Do It!

Oct-15-2019 Technology has made it easy to stay connected with quick access to family and friends, email and news around the globe. While apps, social media, news stations and more have become part of our everyday lives, it’s easy to become addicted to being plugged in. The Value of Unplugging More and more the catalyst for unplugging from screens and technology comes from adults who see the tendency, or even the addiction, in their children to turn on screens during out of school time. Even children are realizing that their draw to screens is an unhealthy habit. Life is simpler without technology.

The Value of Unplugging January 23, 2018 I recently saw a study that looked into the technology habits of children, and some of the results really got me thinking about the benefits of the Cub Scouts experience. This study showed that on average, children between 5 and 8 now spend almost three hours each day in front of a screen. But are there legitimate, proven health benefits to unplugging?

At this point, that’s hard to say. So far, there’s not much strong science suggesting a direct connection between taking regular breaks from digital devices and your health. Investigation of this issue is still in its nascent stage.

Unplugging some of these devices can be a piece of cake, whereas others can be a bit more of a hassle. So is it worth the trouble? The energy costs of plugged-in appliances can really add up, and unplugging these devices could save your up to $100 to $200 a year.

Another benefit of unplugging your appliances is protection from power surges. National Day of Unplugging is an awareness campaign that promotes a 24-hour respite from technology annually observed the first weekend in March. For more than a decade, schools, religious institutions and businesses have used our resources to inspire healthy life/tech balance.

Participation is open to anyone who wishes to elevate human connection over digital engagement.

Similarly, simply unplugging a system would cause you to lose valuable information from the volatile memory of the system.

Since there’s no “Off” switch, the Pi is actually designed to be powered off simply by unplugging it, and nothing bad is supposed to happen (assuming you’ve saved your work, aren’t in the middle of something, and so on).

Unplugging requires that we intentionally find solitude and silence.

Often times, the act of unplugging from electronic media is a reaction to overload.

  • I really want to unplug from social media. I have Facebook and Instagram and I want to close the accounts, but so many pictures will get lost! ��

  • Great video! I do all these things. another tip: turn off you phone at night and do not turn it back on as soon as you wake up. I found that my evenings and mornings are way more relaxed and appreciated when i do that:)

  • Funny you make a video encouraging pp. Not to be on technology as much considering us being on technology is kind of how u make ur money..

  • I want to stay away from the internet more and actually go outside, but I have nothing to do when I go out and my friends can never hang out with me and talk face to face, so… Moral of this comment, get a life. Like, literally get a life. Go outside, get fresh air and stop looking at your phone.

  • Thank you Orin! I’m glad you’re enjoying your adventure. I don’t live in a big city anymore but that doesn’t mean I don’t need to unplug myself once in a while. I’m about to sink my head in a big task, so thank you for the reminder!

  • I have adrenal problems and MCS, so for the last month I have been switching everything off at 9am.  One of the best things I have done.  I have never been able to get up easily but now I sleep so much better and wake before my alarm and am ready to get up even though I am physically exhausted, mentally I am far more alert. and in such a short period.

  • Toxic blue light and nnemf raises your mitochondria heteroplasmy rate. My home at night has LED red lights when needed and candle light and uv black lights. Even during the day, when I use my computer or phone, I have flux biohacked to nighttime 24/7 and I am wearing blue blocking glasses. I also take frequent breaks to ground barefoot and look towards the sun to help replenish my electrons that are lost when I am in a low quantum yield environment.

  • I already deleted all my social media accounts its a waste of time tho. Except youtube.:) go workout eat healthy food sleep early read books or watch some documentary vids.

  • Sorry to tell you Dr but these days of fakestream news 5 minutes is hardly enough time to learn what’s really going on. Believe me I know.

  • I’m trying to schedule one full day a week for no screen time and I’M having SO MUCH TROUBLE. The best I can do right now is 12 hours once a week of no screen whatsoever. So no video editing, no typing, and I’ll work on my proijects the ones I write the old fashioned way, with a pen and paper, or ink and quil, that would be fun to try. If I sleep with my touchpad near me, I do too much Angry Birds and stuff and checking Big Brother live feed uopdates and I get eye fatigue. One eye, we always have a better eye, but the lesser one, get tired mroe easily and sore and my vision gets blurry. Days with more pronounced eye fatigues, I see more floaters in my visions, whereas days I am refreshed and vitalised they are pale and not as intense. At 33 there are quite a bit, you see them when looking at pale blue, some are clear and some are dark dots. What I noticed helps is taking long breaks from computer screens. And teh 20-20-20 rule, looking 20 feet afar, for 20 seconds every 20 minutes, then taking a ten minute break every hour and then after a few hours, taking at least 30 minutes of break time. I still need to discipline myself better though. And I’m the adult.
