From straining eyes to even straining relationships, all that screen time does take a toll. But how do you even go about unplugging?

The four’s Xavier Hershovitz spoke to Wireless Zone on some simple ways we can start a little digital detox. Watch their conversation above.

Their tips include:

  • Create tech-free zones or times. For example, not allowing phones during mealtimes. Create a device checkpoint, like a basket, where devices go during these times.
  • Limit device exposure one hour before bed and require devices to be charged outside the bedroom.
  • Create a charging station or basket
  • Go outside – If you’re cooped up e-learning or working from home all day, it’s important to plan breaks throughout the day to get some fresh air and stop staring at your screen.
