Technology addiction taking over your life? Abstain from the modern age -- for a little while -- with tips on how to survive a digital fast.
Step 1: Set parameters
Set goals and parameters for your digital fast, like the specific gadgets you want to give up and for how long. Expect withdrawal symptoms -- multitasking with several gadgets can have addictive effects.
To feel less anxious, tell friends and family how to reach you in an emergency.
Step 2: Entertain yourself
Stimulate your brain in other ways. Read a book or play puzzle games to keep your mind active and distract yourself from your addiction.
Step 3: Connect with someone
Have a face-to-face conversation with someone to replace the rush you get from digital communication. Find people with whom you can express yourself as you would online.
Consider hanging out with people who are also trying to survive a digital fast.
Step 4: Be in the moment
Be more present and observant in moments when you'd normally be distracted. Scientists believe a few moments of quiet downtime spread throughout the day can help you learn better and retain more information.
Step 5: Identify technology's importance
Toward the end of your fast, make a list of moments when technology would have been useful and when you were happy without it. Then, use the list once your fast is over to strike a new balance in your life.
Step 6: Return to technology
Break your digital fast by slowly reintroducing technology, remembering to control the role it plays in your life.
