Top Reasons To Unplug On Your Next Holiday

A week without the screen? It is enough to send any kid (and their parents) into a spin.

But in today’s tech-obsessed world, often the best escape from the maddening pace of everyday life is simply to switch off – literally.

School holidays are an ideal opportunity to unplug from digital technology and spend time together as a family.

Here’s why:

Quality not quantity

Without the distraction of apps, email and games, parents and their kids have more time to reconnect and spend quality time together. Kids grow up fast, and every conversation counts when it comes to strengthening your bond. Put your phone away and be present in the moment.

There’s a world around you

Next time you are in any public setting – look around. Chances are, 9 out of 10 people will be engrossed in the important business of scrolling their screen. When you break the habit, even for a short while, it allows you to become more aware of your surroundings and your own thoughts.

Just imagine

Often, it is when we are not thinking of much at all that we have our greatest ideas. Give your mind a chance to relax without reaching for your phone or iPad and you may be surprised to discover new thoughts or even a solution to the problem that’s been bugging you.

Likewise, young imaginations fire best without screens putting a dampener on the process.

The two of us

Unplugged holidays also provide parents with quality time for each other, and a healthy couple relationship is integral to a healthy family.
