In the fast-paced, hyper-connected world we live in, our lives are often ruled by digital screens and constant notifications. While technology has transformed the way we live and work, it's essential to take a step back every now and then and recognize the impact it can have on our mental well-being. The concept of a "digital detox" has gained popularity as a way to take a step back, unplug, and reconnect with the present moment. In this article, we'll explore the importance of digital detoxing for mental well-being and provide practical tips on how to achieve a healthier balance in the digital age.
The average person spends a significant amount of time each day glued to screens, whether it's for work, social media, entertainment, or other digital activities. This constant exposure to screens can lead to digital overload, contributing to feelings of stress, anxiety, and burnout. Recognizing the need for a break is the first step towards prioritizing mental health. Here are some benefits of doing a digital detox.
In a world where technology plays a central role in our lives, finding a balance between digital engagement and real-world experiences is crucial for mental well-being. A digital detox doesn't necessarily mean completely disconnecting from the digital world; it's about consciously managing our screen time to create a healthier and more fulfilling life. By incorporating these practical tips into our daily routines, we can reap the benefits of a digital detox and nurture our mental well-being in the process.

Hello! My name is Raeven Barnes. I am twenty five years old, and I am from Kalamazoo, MI. I made the decision to come to Ross Medical because I was sick. I was basically living in the hospital on and off for about ten years. I saw the opposite side of the medical world while being a patient and fighting for my life. Unfortunately, while being under the care of certain medical professionals, there was little to no empathy. I started to have this desire to help others like me. I have been through the storm in my life and now that I'm healthy I am so happy to be attending Ross. I can't wait to become a Pharmacy Technician and make a difference in someone's life.Raeven Barnes Graduate Pharmacy Technician student at Kalamazoo, MI campus Graduation: August 26, 2019
