Throw Away your Smart Phone & Find Solace that you have been Missing
Hundreds of tourists stand in front of the Taj-Mahal each day but only a few of them are looking directly on one of the most famous buildings. The others keep checking their phone to post another selfie and count the likes they already have. Is this really how a holiday looks like today? It is time to log out of your Facebook, turn off your mobile phone and finally reconnect to the world around you, and this is just what “out of range” travels are made for.
No mobile phones, no social media, no cameras. And this time for real. Digital Detox Holidays are becoming the new trend especially among urban people, who want to enjoy a relaxing journey far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The best “out of range” travel destinations are the ones close to the nature, where you can forget the everyday stress and leave the world of digital addicts behind. Instead of flailing with a selfie stick, taking photos and hunting Wi-Fi you will be having a real holiday with adventures and memories for a lifetime. Instead of posting on the Internet how much fun you have, you will actually be having fun. Without your smart phone in your pocket, you will learn to appreciate the present more and you will recognize the things you probably never did before.
Did you know that an average owner uses their phone for three hours and sixteen minutes a day? That means we waste nearly one whole day every week on social media. It is time to kick the habit and start to tick the items on our bucket list. It is time to reconnect to the world around you! Speak with people instead of constantly sending messages on Facebook.
“Take a walk into the forest and discover the fauna, climb a mountain and feel yourself on the top of the world or just relax on the beach/farm with a good book in your hands. Do everything you want, leave your mobile phone and your comfort zone. Take every chance that crosses your way. Do it for yourself, not for the likes!“
You can go alone, with your family or with friends. Now you will have the opportunity to spend time with the ones who are close to you without being interrupted by a call from the office or an email you have to answer immediately. Concentrate on the things that really matter. Take your time to play with your children, change gossips with your best friends or just have some uninterrupted intimate moments with your partner. Feel close to the nature and the people around you again. Make some unforgettable memories together and recognize how beautiful the world is outside of the Internet. After a digital detox you will feel like a different person. Believe me, there is nothing more relaxing than few peaceful days without social media.
So just throw your smart phone away and find your digital detox holiday today. Say goodbye to your colleagues and friends because you will be “out of range” for sure.
