Digital Stress – Digital Detox

Arianna Huffington caused a bit of a stir on Facebook this week when she announced that she would be taking an ‘Email Detox’. Nothing wrong with that I thought, I’m a firm believer in disconnecting to reconnect. It wasn’t until I actually read her intention that I understood what all the fuss what about;

For the first time in my life, I have gone on an email detox, courtesy of HuffPost’s new vacation email tool. Anyone who emails me will receive a response explaining that the email will be deleted. If it is urgent they are invited to reach out to an alternative contact. If it is not, they can reach out when I’m back.” (Arianna Huffington Facebook 29th July 2015)

Never one to sit on the fence when it comes to wellness issues, I posted a comment in reply;

I think that whilst many would agree that a disconnect from technology is a beneficial thing, the ‘delete’ comes across as a disregard of others and what they wish to communicate. I’m sure a delayed response message would allow you personal freedom whilst respecting the views of those who are reaching out to you.”

Created from sustainable local bamboo, it offers shelter from the elements and is home to the island’s first AntiGravity Yoga.
