Digital detox in Trentino
How to detox from the Internet? The simplest answer is a “digital detox holiday”, in close contact with nature in Trentino, without a cell phone and no contact with technology.
We live in a world always connected, among thousands of interruptions and notifications, controlling social platforms, emails and cell phone all the time. All of this distracts our concentration and runs out of our physical and mental energies. Through the digital detox it is possible to leave work stress and anxiety at home and go back to everyday routines relaxed, reloaded and in shape.
What does Digital Detox mean?
Translated into Italian, Digital Detox means “Digital Detoxification”: it is the time period when an individual refrains from using any digital or electronic device. But don’t worry! This will make the awareness mature that a phase of separation from smartphone, laptop and tablet can only have positive effects on the body and mind.
The Digital Detox gives us the possibility of rediscovering ourselves, sharing happy moments with our family and friends, without thinking of phone calls, business emails and everything that brings us back to the stress of everyday life.
What it means to take a digital detox holiday
The digital detox holiday has the purpose to rediscover your inner balance and reconnect with the world around you. The simplicity of life, in close contact with nature and silence, without internet and television, leads to a digital detoxification, that initially can scare, but, already in the short term, leads to savour again all the sensations related to the nature.
