We wake up in the morning to the sound of our smartphone alarm and go to sleep in the evening in front of the laptop. It is normal now for modern technologies to accompany us throughout the day. However, the "always-on" mentality quickly causes stress: that's why it makes sense to take an occasional digital break.
