We all know that spending too much on-line time is bad for our mental health. But that isn’t the whole story.
Social media, celeb gossip forums, (so dull and yet so popular!) Youtube videos with impossibly perfect lifestyles, & lavish shopping addictions, these are just some of the darker sides of on-line living.
On the brighter side – picking up language skills, on line yoga & pilates and even work related zoom meetings to name a few. My nephew had on-line language classes for years. He now speaks pretty good french, spanish and (I think) chinese mandarin – not bad for a 12 year old.
A healthy life balance may contain interaction with plenty of real people, restaurants serving actual food to eat, (rather than just photographing it for IG), visiting shops and above all travel.
aaah how we missed travel! About to book a serene getaway with a full digital detox, thrown in. Planning for plenty of yoga and meditation – bliss! The only question that remains: (somewhat unsettling my zen) What handbag do I need to take? Any suggestions?
