Summary, Etc. "Digital Detox: Why Taking a Break from Technology Can Improve Your Well-Being explores a range of topics associated with the countermovement to digital device over-usage and addiction that began to surface in Europe, and soon, thereafter, globally. In various forms, the countermovement became known as including individuals who vociferously advocated for a regular "digital detox" regimen in order to preserve one's mental and physical well-being. It explores experts' opinions on the rising awareness of the negative psychological, physiological, and behavioral effects of digital overuse, or Internet Addiction, on private citizens; the need to prevent or recover from these harms; measures commonly used to counteract addictions to smart phones, social media, and online gaming; how Internet addictions are related to individuals' motivations to undergo a digital detox; and ; research findings regarding the protocols and effectiveness of various digital detox remedies practiced during normative and lockdown periods-like those arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics in this book are divided into two main sections: (1) Harm to persons from various online addictions to smartphones, social media, online gaming, and the like- giving rise to the digital detox countermovement, and (2) Digital detox remedies: Do they work?"-- Provided by publisher.
