Time for a “Digital Detox”?

A Yahoo! survey of 1,000 Americans found that 67% agree that technology makes life easier, but nearly as many (55%) believe that it can be a distraction, and 33% worry it undermines people’s ability to connect with one another. Still, 54% said that abstaining from their devices didn’t result in the positive benefits they’d hoped for and questioned whether shutting down is truly beneficial.

Rather than forcing yourself to close down entirely, it might be wiser to turn off notifications or schedule some time on a “Do Not Disturb” setting. That leaves you free to utilize technology on your own terms, while stepping away from the virtual world.
