Digital Detoxing

Digital Detox – Discussion with Dr. Elizabeth on KATV’s Good Afternoon Arkansas

They are everywhere and we all have at least one: a cellular phone, laptop, tablet, and a multitude of other digital devices. They have changed how we function every day in our lives, but is that necessarily a good thing?

You may be wondering what digital detoxing is and why it matters. A digital detox is taking a break from using electronic or digital devices for a period of time. Are you in need of a digital detox? Are you constantly checking your phone and feel stressed out if you don’t?

Dr. Elizabeth discussed digital detoxing with Alicia Dover on KATV’s Good Afternoon Arkansas and explained why it is important to be more aware of the time you spend on your cell phone and digital devices.
