I have often been asked what I do to “digitally detox”, my answer is always the same. I don’t. Frankly, I can’t. Simply because I genuinely live online, my work more than requires it, and honestly I prefer to clear my email and Whatsapp messages while they are still manageable rather than switch off for a week and come back to an avalanche of notifications.
But I have found a rather unorthodox way of finding my detox online. Here are a few of my favorite Apps to help you live better, some of which have been nominated by my wonderful Girl Tribe – a social community for women who want to live their best lives.
A super easy and fun approach to self-improvement. It actually offers you heaps of validation and encouragement simply for adopting little good habits! You pick a “journey” and inculcate habits as simple as drinking enough water every day, concentrating harder, or even improving your diet. It literally is a “choose your healthy and happy adventure.”
Calm is a simple, cool, and relaxing App to help you meditate and sleep better. It definitely does wonders in lowering stress, anxiety and helping you connect with your higher self.
Relaxing games where you grow your own Koi fish pond while nurturing a calming environment to enjoy with soothing music when you want to Zen out. Or build a butterfly garden set to soft soothing music.
An App to get to know your friends and family better. Daily prompts help you strengthen relationships, improve your emotional well-being, and support each other with meaningful conversations.
