Social media is an inescapable part of many of our lives; we often find ourselves mindlessly scrolling on hours for Instagram or Twitter and therefore never giving our minds the chance to fully switch off. The incredible rise in social media over the past decade has also come with inevitable backlash, which has resulted in the increasing popularity of ‘unplug retreats’.
At these retreats you are required to hand your phone in on entry and take part in activities centred upon meditation and reflection. “Digital Detox Retreats” have seen great success off the back of this pressing need to disconnect from your phone and reconnect with the real world. Their service includes a range of workshops where you can practice yoga, writing or even cooking, for an experience that leaves you feeling truly centred. Sign us up!
