For a More Balanced and Healthy Lifestyle: Digital Detox

As the Vitalica Wellness team, in this article, we want to share with you our unhealthy relationship with the digital world, the consequences of this dependency, and insights into digital detox.


So far, we've touched on various aspects of our physical and mental health. Let's take a short break and talk about our digital habits, which often dominate a significant part of our lives. How healthy are our digital habits, and what contributions can digital detox make to our lives?

The foundation of 'digitalization' laid in 2010 has rapidly advanced, continuing to shape our lives up to the present day. Undoubtedly, the swift progress of digital technologies has had both positive and negative effects on our lives. With its pervasive presence in every aspect of our lives, being constantly connected to a screen and exposed to digital stimuli has become inevitable. Suddenly, smartphones, tablets, and even smartwatches have taken over every corner of our lives, creating a digital web, so to speak. However, especially the excessive use of social media platforms can have negative impacts on both our physical and mental health.

As the Vitalica Wellness team, in this article, we want to share with you our unhealthy relationship with the digital world, the consequences of this dependency, and insights into digital detox.

In the digital world, especially on social media platforms, our subconscious is bombarded with data on various topics every day. We see a trend on social media where people try to conform to a uniform appearance, not only in their external looks but also in their eating habits, lifestyle, and clothing choices. While everyone strives to imitate each other, they can forget what is suitable for themselves, leading to the loss of both mental and physical health.

As a result, certain developments in the digital world, while introducing facilitators into our lives, also bring along a new topic of addiction – 'Technology Addiction,' also known as 'Digital Addiction.'


So, how is technology addiction defined? It can be described as individuals spending excessive and uncontrolled time on digital devices and online activities. To overcome digital or technology addiction, as with any addiction, we need to identify the underlying real cause and understand the nature of the addiction. We can observe the harmful effects of digital addiction on physical health, mental health, and social relationships.

One of the crucial steps to overcoming this addiction is digital detox. What can you do during a digital detox, and what are its benefits?

  1. Making digital detox a routine is essential for maintaining sustainable balance. Spending a specific day each week or regularly taking a few days off from digital devices can make it easier to adopt this habit.

  2. Creating digital balance; there are digital balance applications that can reverse the paradox of applications on smartphones. These apps can monitor screen time, limit the use of specific applications, and help you achieve your digital detox goals.

  3. Regularly distancing yourself from digital devices not only positively affects your physical health but also contributes to improved mental health. Taking a break from digital devices regularly can reduce stress, enhance concentration, and contribute to overall mood improvement.

  4. Digital detox can boost your creativity. Allowing mental space for new ideas to flourish and creative thinking to develop. Stepping away from digital tools and focusing on your inner world can increase your chances of expressing yourself and focusing on creative projects.

  5. The blue light emitted by screens can inhibit melatonin production and lead to sleeplessness. Doing a digital detox, especially avoiding screens before bedtime, can help you experience a deeper and higher-quality sleep. Improving your sleep routine can have a positive impact on your overall health and energy levels.

  6. During the digital detox process, focusing on physical activities instead of screens supports your physical health. Engaging in activities such as walking, exercising, or practicing yoga can have positive effects on both physical and mental health.


As you can see from the points shared above, digital detox can, in a way, be considered as digital wellness. For example, when you choose a detox program tailored to your body through a doctor consultation instead of following diets presented as highly beneficial on social media, you will realize that you can reach your desired goals more quickly, and most importantly, without risking your health. When you let go of comparisons with various images, you will understand that true beauty lies in being 'authentically yourself.'
