While advances in technology have undeniably made our lives easier, being constantly connected – – texting, checking emails and social media sites – can have unhealthy physical and mental effects.
It’s nothing new to hear that using laptops and smartphones before bed can affect your quality of sleep, but you may be surprised to know that a study published by the Public Library of Science found that “the more time a person spends on Facebook, the more dissatisfied they ultimately feel with their own life”. Alila Villas Soori is offering an opportunity for you to re-examine your relationship with technology; to find a healthy balance between staying connected and switching off.
