Digital detox

Author: Alex Drozdovsky

Abstract:

Let's face it, in many ways, new technologies are fantastic. But every hour, technologies and the Internet – applications, social networking, news – are stealing our attention. Something is always up online and we switch easily. We replace a chance of taking a break by online fuss, a chance of thinking by others’ ideas. We hop from one tab to another, knowing no peace. We are going to ask ourselves why are we constantly pulled to the network, the algorithms are changing society and the person, how to explain the new feelings that we experience, what new processes are happening in the human mind in this fully digitalised world. Digital Detox is a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices such as smart phones or computers, regarded as an opportunity to reduce stress or focus on social interaction in the physical world.
