For entertainment, certainly, technological achievements are also of use. The Internet is the resource to find even the most extravagant way of relaxation. To spend a quiet evening at home, one may scan the adult cam sites list and choose the most alluring website for online dating. Indeed, online life is not less interesting than offline.

Yet, in recent times, people have realized the importance of digital detox. What does it mean? In order to keep the balance between real life and online presence, it is recommended to spend some time apart from a smartphone, Internet, and PC. It can be a challenging task as in every free minute, people even do not notice that the first thing they do is taking a cell phone.

Besides, reducing the time spent in front of a screen will help to maintain eyesight and body health, in addition to improving the psychological and emotional state.

Approaches to Escaping from Tech Addiction

1.The first step is to download a special app. It can be surprising that there is an application which controls the time spent on social networks and messengers. After reducing online time, each person will be astonished by the amount of time which has become available.

2.The next and more profound step is to travel somewhere. While a person is fully enjoying life around, there is no time for FB. Only a camera is needed. It is important not to upload the pics immediately to social networks.

3.The most extreme way is to go in a desolate place and to exclude using all the gadgets and equipment people are so used to in every-day routine.

What is the Designation of Digital Detox?

The biggest problem nowadays is that people are so absorbed by the Internet and technological achievements that there is no time to enjoy such simple things as the beauty of nature, smiling kids or a day spent outside. Every single day is almost the same: Monday to Friday with some diversion on weekends.

In the pursuit of happiness, achievements, and financial well-being, unfortunately, most humans forget that time flies. Hence, there is no need to spend all day off reading a book in order to improve financial education. Sometimes, it is better to relax, arrange a picnic or go on a short trip. The fresh brain generates ideas more efficiently. Besides, nature is one of the best sources of inspiration and relaxation.

Technological achievements and innovations have significantly facilitated and improved people's lives. However, they are not designed to replace the world around. These are accessories. It is important not to let them substitute a real life in the real world which is amusing, by the way.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.
