Digital detox: Is it a necessity or can you do without it?

Have you ever tried to be without your cell phone for a while? And today, anyone who disconnects from social networks or the internet becomes a reason for admiration.

Some famous people who made this decision and gave their testimonials on how it was transformative.

“It was a transformative and very difficult process, which also made me recover my self-confidence”, said singer Manu Gavassi, who spent months without social networks.

“Taking a break from social media was the best decision I ever made for my mental health. I created a system where I still don’t have my passwords. The unnecessary hate and comparisons went away as soon as I hung up the phone,” said singer Selena Gomez.

Expert Opinion:

“The modern and productive citizen will hardly be able to live outside the digital world. Therefore, first you need to analyse whether this is really harming you in your day-to-day life and then, little by little, you reduce consumption”, said Marcel Matsuda, CEO of an advertising agency.

“Whoever is not on social networks does not exist. So, it is extremely important to be there, but you cannot be a slave”, highlighted Adriana Diniz, specialist in digital marketing.
