Why do we need to Disconnect?
When was the last time you spent a week without your phone? Ever? That’s it. This is why we do it.
Offline is not just leaving the phone in a locker for 1 week. These days we live in, leaving your phone behind means leaving your comfort zone.
Well, what is our comfort zone then? It’s everything that your mind is used to – your babits, your routine, everything that is familiar to you.
Let’s put it this way: You are a mini-computer where your brain is your hardware. Since you were actually concieved in your mom’s belly you are receiving different codes and software in your computer …until NOW.
Everyday our mind gets different information: From work, relationships, Family, travels, News, social media and so on.
Turns out that most of the information our computer receives these days we are living in are driven by the EGO – which is sort of software that is. run actually by others, not exactly what you ARE. The Ego is whatever is driven by what other people expect from you, or what is supposed to be known as normal or fitting into the society model we live in. So…if everyone goes on Tinder, why can I not do it also? If everyone picks up a phone call from work at 11 in the evening I should also do, so I don’t let people down.
The constant rhythm that we live these days and by that I mean not only the working hours but also the restless minds we have gets our computer full of virus, things that we don’t really identify with but it’s there because we grew up WITH THOSE IMPUTS. The only way we can reset the computer is BY STOPPING. DISCONNECTING.
That is what we promote, for you to stop, breathe and give your mind (hardware) a reset. The same way you train your body for a marathon, you also need to train your mind to actually STOP.
In our point of view, the smartphone, it’s one of the biggest distractors of our mind taking away your freedom to actually do what you want, anywhere, anytime. It takes away your attention and awareness to be fully presen in any situation, anywhere, anytime. It takes away that PEACE OF MIND.
It affects you on a social, professional but most of all on your own personal level.
