Digital Detox & Mindfulness

In a fast paced world, where increasing pressures can lead to stress and anxiety, we need to find ways to relax to maintain our mental health and well-being. Current thinking promotes digital detox and mindfulness as ways of doing this.

But what are they and how do they work?

Here’s a selection of books to help you find out and decide whether any of the methods described are for you. In fact, research shows that just reading any book slows the heart rate and reduces muscle tension and stress.

So, in recognition of World Mental Health Day on 10th October

Put away the technology…pick up a book…relax…
