Go Camping


You can do it yourself too, especially if you live somewhere near national parks or areas full of nature. You can even make a holiday of it if you fancied something new, such as a trip to Norway where camping is pretty much ingrained in national identity.

Where you can be trained up and learn how to survive on an island before being left on one to fend for yourself. It’s pretty daunting, but it can be the ultimate in digital detox, where it’s just you, nature, and your recently acquired survival skills. You’ll be kept busy by hunting, the beautiful vistas and corals and making your own fire.


Lock It Away

The excursions and the new area will be enough for you. Try taking a book or two, it should keep your mind off your phone and don’t ask for the WI-FI password. You don’t need to even go on holiday, although it would be easier. These days, you can buy a box in which you can lock your phone and other gadgets for a set period of time.
