While technology has benefited us in many ways, it’s also brought us into a distracting vortex of constant communication. This makes it almost impossible to leave work where it belongs...at work! In this unique and transformative session, you’ll learn how to take a much- needed digital sabbatical and #unplug from technology for a predetermined amount of time. This means no phone, email or any social network, including, but not limited to, downloading, syncing, sending, submitting, posting, pinning, sharing, uploading, updating, commenting, tagging, rating, liking, loving, upvoting, starring, favoriting, bookmarking, plus-oneing, or re-anything-ing! The benefits? More clarity and happiness, available to you whenever you choose it. 

Attendees will:

  • Access the benefits of taking breaks from social media

  • Examine the tools required to remove yourself from constant connectivity

  • Develop a strategy to unplug from technology for mental health purposes
