24 Apr The ultimate digital detox, discover the atoll of Saint Brandon.

From intrusive alerts to constant social media sharing, technology is an ever-present guest at our dinner tables, in our office meeting spaces, and on our morning commutes. It’s even snuck its way into experiences meant to be relaxing and revitalizing, like vacations. While electronic devices can certainly help ease some travel troubles, it can also be a relief to step away from your phone or computer.

And the best way to do that is by removing the temptation entirely—no TVs, no Wi-Fi—and indulge in some much-deserved digital detoxing. With its crystalline, turquoise waters that lap gently at flawless, powder-white beaches, Saint Brandon, embodies the archetypal islands paradise dream. It also remains blissfully untouched due to its remoteness. Raphael Fishing is very much concerned in marine life conservation and in preserving the site as a major bird sanctuary for this region of the world.

Doing a digital detox have some great benefits on your wellbeing. Here are 3 key benefits:

A happier and calmer you.

When you’re on your phone or absorbed in your emails, you’re not living in the present. It’s only when you open your eyes to the here and now that you realise how easy it is to miss out on the good things around you.

Your physical health will improve. 

If your eyes are glued to the screen, you’re probably sitting or lying down. It’s not only terrible for your lower back and neck, but it’s also bad on your waistline. Unplug and you’ll be amazed how much better you feel.

Improved sleep. 

When your body knows it’s time to sleep, your brain releases a chemical called melatonin, which helps the body relax and prepare for some shut-eye. Science has shown that when you look at a screen before bedtime, your brain is tricked into thinking it must remain alert and awake, preventing melatonin from being released. now you know why you might be tossing and turning in bed wondering why you can’t get to sleep.
