This is an excerpt of a post by Beth Kanter on Beth’s Blog on June 27, 2016.
Last week was the first day of summer and it got me thinking about doing a digital detox. However, Aliza Sherman and I were reviewing the final round of edits from our copy editor at Wiley for our forthcoming book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit, due out in October. That task required a screen!
Now that task has been checked off my to do list, I am ready to pay attention to technology wellness again. The first thing I did was to take a walk at the Stanford Dish, a nearby nature hiking area, without my mobile phone. It is a amazing how a short walk in the woods, a park, or other natural area can make you feel good. And, ironically, the science to back this up also comes from Stanford University.
