Is Digital Detox Possible?

Is it pragmatic?

It’s a fact that we live in the age of social media, the level of dependence differing from person to person. Being digital has undoubtedly become an indispensable part of our lives, but while it has helped people connect it hasn’t exactly brought them closer.

But is it comprehensible to think of life without social networking. Is digital detox a possibility?

On a personal note I have resisted the temptation of joining a number of such platforms, ones that either make no sense to me or do not affect my overall digital presence. Over the last few years the level of engagement with a few others has also gradually diminished, and become almost negligible.

Having restrained myself to a considerable degree, I still find a total switch off difficult. Sometimes I even question myself, “Is it a pragmatic option?”

What do you think?
