What is DigitalSilence?

 

DigitalSilence is committing to 3 days without technology and reconnecting with reality. We all recognise the importance of the digital world around us and for most it seems impossible to live without. Checking social updates, surfing the web, watching TV, on-line gaming and having an app for everything is now a large part of our leisure time.

What DigitalSilence offers is a choice, to take a break from our digital environment, to help encourage face to face relationships and appreciate the world around us. It’s not a ban, its a fast from anything digital, where you replace the time you would have interacted with a device with something tangible.

Some of the things you may consider going without:

Laptops/ComputersInternet – no facebook/twitter/email/youtube

Mobiles – no texting/social updates

TV sky/dvds/blueray

MP3 players

Games consoles

Ereaders

This list can be made as long as you need. For complete DigitalSilence you would need to cut everything out, but you may start by choosing a handful from the list.
We would love to hear how you get on, so please leave your thoughts and suggestions. If you appreciated the time share this group with someone else.

We hope that you are able to embrace Life to its full.
