We firmly believe that the key to feeling confident about yourself and your life is focusing on what’s important and knowing when to tune out all of the background noise.

But that can be hard when you’re a Girlboss on the move! Hear us out: here are 3 ways that unplugging can benefit you and your business.

Happiness Hacks: Why Sometimes, You Just Have to Unplug

You’ll Relax More

Knowing when to call it quits and unplug is a challenge for even the most self-aware entrepreneur. According to a study from Kansas State University, unplugging after work can help improve your quality of life, your mental and physical health and your overall happiness. That’s right, folks – it’s hard science that unplugging from your work tasks will help you feel more refreshed and ready to take on the world. How’s that for a happiness hack?

You’ll Sleep Better

By now, you probably know that the blue light from the screens in our computers and phones can wreak some serious havoc on our bodies’ natural sleeping cycling. But the glow from your phone does more than make it difficult for you to fall asleep.  If you aren’t giving your brain and body enough time to recharge at night, it will likely increase your anxiety and decrease your productivity in the long run.

And You’ll Feel More Content

We all get caught up in the many benefits of technology – rapid and instant communication is totally awesome, but it’s also totally addictive. And like many addictions, you might not notice its effects until your habit has gone a little too far. Unplugging and limiting the amount of time you spend connected to technology will naturally increase the amount of time you spend focusing on your human interactions and creating fulfilling connections with other people. When you take a break from tech, you’ll feel more open to appreciating life as it happens. And that, friends, is the ultimate happiness hack.
