The Benefits of Unplugging

Unplugging is a word being thrown around a lot lately meaning disconnecting from technology. At Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center in San Rafael, CA, we want patients to know the benefits of stepping away from the computer and putting the phone down.

As it turns out, there are many benefits to putting down technology. When you “unplug” it could be for the night after work, for a whole day, or even a week or longer. People can set their own limits on how long they want to stay unplugged.

Sleep The light emitted from the screens we look at all day can actually disrupt your sleeping patterns. Unplugging may help you get a more restful sleep.

Improved Mood The constant connection to the world through technology can leave people feeling jaded, jealous, and lonely. These aren’t very good feelings coming from something that is supposed to make us feel connected. Unplugging can help you connect with the world around you and improve your mood.

Improved Memory Unplugging lets your brain rest and reset, helping you with your memory. Plus, you will have much more time to focus on tasks, hobbies, and new experiences if you choose.

Uninterrupted Tasks When you do not have your phone at hand buzzing and beeping, distracting you from what you are doing, you can complete tasks much quicker with much more focus.

Less Stress People that bring their work home with them by answering emails and phone calls never let their brain take a break from work. Unplugging and leaving work at work will let you relax, unwind, and de-stress.

Next time you notice you are glued to your smartphone, keep these benefits in mind and choose to unplug! To learn more about Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center in San Rafael, CA, call us at (415) 721-7520 or visit our website,
