From the beginning of smartphones and apps we’ve learned the digital doctrine of ABC’s (Always Be Connected.) Now with the help of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – we’re obsessed with starring at our phones 50, 100 and even up to 300 times a day. Many people choose to dedicate the beginning of the year to fresh new year’s resolutions for fitness, finances and even digital health and wellness. I personally decided to refresh by going on a much needed digital detox.
There are plenty of benefits & a few setbacks that a digital detox can bring in your life – discover the five stages of a digital detox and how starting healthier digital habits can leave your refreshed and connectedly balanced for the new year below.
Preparing for a break from digital devices and social media takes determination and having a complete goal in mind. Whether it’s spending time working on interpersonal relationships or just taking a break from feeding the social media beast preparing for your digital detox takes time.
Benefits – Whether going on a digital diet and minimizing your time on your smartphone, tablet or other electronics or slowing up your social media intake on Facebook or Instagram, taking the right approach on how far to take your digital detox will only work out if you determine what you want to get out of your detox in the long run.
You’re bound to get anxious once you determine to take the leap into a detox like this but remember though this confrontation can be difficult at first, the pay off is significant. Many detoxers find a real world connectedness that enriches and enhances our lives in a way no Wi-Fi connection can.
Benefits – Some of the changes you should anticipate after a digital detox are more balanced and calmer calmer feeling in your life due to periodically stopping the continual digital exposure throughout your day. You’ll feel more rested, more aware, more present, more productive and less overwhelmed and stressed out. You’ll also feel more connected to your work, love relationships, family, friends and yourself.
After taking the leap and going through with your digital detox, to your relief you’ll find that it’s actually easier than you thought it would be. After all, you’ve lived a life before gadgets and social media so surely you’ll be able to conquer what life is like without it.
Benefits: You can be so preoccupied with your digital devices that it’s all too easy to inadvertently sacrifice time, relationships, sleep, focus, productivity and balance in your life. Many people are not even aware of the toll their extensive usage of digital devices costs them until they have suffered a loss or upset because of this. The relief you’ll experience during the digital detoxification process is just the beginning to a life of balance and how happy you’re truly feel once you complete your challenge.
Once you reach a level of contentment with your digital detox, you’ll find yourself breathing a sigh of relief and coming to terms with just how dependent you were on “likes”, “shares”, “comments” and “checkins”. The digital age has changed the levels of transparency that we expect from ourselves and others. Keep it real with yourself about your addiction and what you’d like to gain from your detox and instantly feel the weight of the world wide web off your shoulders and the freedom to live your life the way you want to live.
Benefits: There’s a saying “The first step in solving a problem is to recognize that it does exist.” (-Zig Ziglar) The moment you become transparent with yourself, you’re able to recognize what areas in life that you’d like to improve. When you have a digital detox you feel more rested and less stressed. Who wouldn’t want to feel less stressed?
Reaching the final stage of your digital detoxification is where you begin to feel all the benefits in a euphoric way. You’ll begin to feel more rested, more aware, more present, more productive and less overwhelmed and stressed out. You’ll also feel more connected to work, love relationships, family, friends and to yourself. This time of self awareness will empower you to rebel against the norm of social media use and will make you feel like a maverick and true trendsetter of creating a balanced life.
Benefits: Creating a life lived on your terms will empower you to own your happiness and create long-term, meaningful connections with coworkers, friends, family and more. The biggest benefit of them all, you’ll live a happier and healthier life!
After completing my digital detox for the month of January, I feel more relaxed and have a new perspective on how I use social media. After all, isn’t social media supposed to be used to facilitate connections? If FOMO (fear of missing out) is a little too strong in your life, maybe a digital detox is just what you need to jumpstart your new year.
Have you tried a digital detox yet? What was the biggest benefit for you?

Did you know that twice a year, there’s a way to optimize your smartphone and tablet speeds? Hey iPhone users, have you been noticing that your iPhone is running a little sluggishly lately? It’s highly possible your speeds are getting bogged down with unnecessary things in your storage — like your Safari cache. Some may argue that your Safari cache actually helps you load pages faster, and that’s true… but the trade-off is you may find that your phone has slowed down. It’s also possible that due to an bulky cache that hasn’t been cleared since the beginning of TIME, you phone gets confused and your pages don’t load correctly.
How To Increase Your iPhone Speed
Simply go to Settings > Safari and scroll down to “Clear History and Website Data.” When you tap on that, a pop-up notification will alert you that “Clearing will remove history, cookies, and other browsing data.”
To translate this into layman’s terms: It erases documentation of all the sites you’ve surfed on your browser. It also deletes cookies, which are essentially messages that go from an Internet server to your web browser that help identify you (i.e. provides your login info or customize your pages). Also, it gets rid of other data like the time you visited, page titles, etc.
Just confirm you want to clear all that out and voilà! You’ve made your iPhone/iPad just a tad faster.
Need a little more speed? Try it out and let us know in the comments how well it works for you!

Roku 2: Whether they’re cord-cutters or “cord nevers,” many younger people aren’t signing up for expensive cable TV subscriptions — which makes mini streaming boxes like the $70 Roku 2 a perfect gift. It leaves off the headphone jack and voice-control option on the included Wi-Fi remote, but otherwise performs as well the step-up Roku 3, which is why we call the Roku 2 the best Roku for the money. It still streams great services like Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, Amazon Instant, Watch ESPN, Vudu, YouTube, Sling TV, and literally hundreds of other channels — most of which, of course, require separate subscriptions or fees. The Wi-Fi remote — which doesn’t require “line of sight” to the player — also includes a headphone jack for private listening.
For The Classroom

“Hey! Are those iPhone charging jeans you’re wearing?” Sure it doesn’t roll off the tongue quite like those Bugle Boy jeans commercials from back in the day, but these new smart jeans may just be the newest addition that you’ll want to add to your closet asap.
A new denim line from Joe’s Jeans, called the #Hello jean, tries to solve both the problem of charging your iPhone and stylish jeans that’ll fit your iPhone at once. The jeans, which don’t come cheap for $189, have a special opening above the traditional back pocket for a battery pack, which charges your iPhone 5, 5S or 6 in another special pocket alongside the charger opening.
The charging pocket works with the help of a USB cord hidden along the seams and connects to a small portable battery pack, which is an additional $49. Meanwhile, the iPhone fits into the back pocket and can fuel up on battery power (hopefully, without someone noticing — or snatching it away). Just remember to remove both components before throwing the jeans in the wash.
Although the premise is a nice idea, don’t think you’ll get to leave your chunky portable chargers at home ladies. The charger with the new #Hello jean will barely charge the iPhone 5 and 5S up to 85%, and charges the iPhone 6 up to 70%.
What do you think? Is rocking a new pair of phone charging smart jeans for $189 in your immediate future? Share in the comments section below!
The National Society of Black Engineers has announced the dates and locations for its 2015 Summer Engineering Experience for Kids program, or SEEK. Founded in 2007, SEEK is the nation’s largest summer engineering program geared toward African American pre-college students.
SEEK participants engage in team-based, competitive engineering design activities and learn science, technology, engineering and math concepts under the guidance of SEEK mentors: NSBE college student members from across the U.S. The ultimate goal of the program is to increase the number of college engineering students and engineering professionals among African Americans, a community starkly underrepresented in this field.
Neville Green, NSBE’s national chair, said in a release that “Increasing the STEM proficiency of black students in grades 4 through 8 is a must for NSBE to achieve its primary goal, which is to produce 10,000 black engineers annually in the U.S. by 2025.” Green is a chemical engineering senior at the City University of New York. “Expansion of SEEK is a major part of our plan to reach that number.”
The program is expanding into four new cities: Birmingham, Alabama; Boston; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and Los Angeles.
The summer 2015 SEEK program has been announced as follows:
Atlanta, Ga. June 8
Birmingham, Ala. June 15
Boston, Mass. July 13
Chicago, Ill. July 6
Denver, Colo. (Site 1) July 13

Are you looking for a pressure-free shopping experience to experience the latest in computing, tech and accessories? While most (79%) of Americans are excited about the chance to learn and try out new technologies, half are frustrated by the lack of access to them beyond what they read or see in the media, according to a new study by Intel and Toluna. That’s why Intel and Best Buy are now teaming up to bring new Intel Technology Experience zones to 50 Best Buy stores in major markets across the U.S.

For many, this is the first opportunity to see, touch, and play with exciting new technologies they’ve only heard about.
Averaging 240 square feet, the Intel Technology Experience will show customers the power of Intel: the technology behind these new, innovative activities is the same power behind the devices like tablets and laptops we love and rely on every day. Customers can build and print their own 3D robot, show off their racing skills on Mars in an augmented reality world, master beats and remix tracks by Ne-Yo as a digital DJ, and check out the latest PC and tablet devices powered by Intel processors.
The area is be staffed by specially trained Best Buy Blue Shirts to answer questions and help customers make the most of each area within the experience. Each season, Intel will refresh the venues with a new array of technology experiences.

I love saving money and I love saving it with as little planning as possible. So when Walgreen’s asked me to share my experience saving money on the spot with the Walgreen’s App and paperless coupons, I was ecstatic to share – because I know you’ll be excited once you see how you can save money instantly too!
Remember the extreme couponing craze from years ago? I’ve never been a big coupon clipper but I am jealous when I see pantries filled with groceries and cleaners on a five dollar budget! Now, the art of couponing has been revolutionized on a smartphone app, so that people like you and I can save money too! Since I don’t do much pre-planning when it comes to last-minute shopping at Walgreen’s – I like to scroll through the app while shopping in the aisles in order to catch a money saving coupon for items I’m currently shopping for in-store.
What is the Walgreen’s App and paperless coupons all about? The Walgreens paperless coupons are basically manufacturer eCoupons that can be ‘clipped’ to your own Balance Rewards account and redeemed when you purchase to product. That means, no more reading through Sunday’s paper for coupons or sifting through the in-store circular to find the best deals. Simply download the Walgreen’s app, add your Balance Rewards number and discover your eCoupons right there on your smartphone. To redeem simply scan your Balance Rewards Card (via the App on your phone, the actual card or by punching in your phone number) at checkout and it automatically is applied. Say goodbye to Sunday paper scissor sessions cutting up coupons or remembering to bring them to the store.
Be sure to sync your Balance Rewards membership to the Mobile App to get started. Each paperless coupon can only be used once. Once it is redeemed it will be deleted from your coupon list. Just by using my Walgreen’s App and paperless coupons I saved close to $20 during my most recent visit shopping for items like Body wash, shampoo, mouth wash, vitamins, and laundry detergent! As if you needed another reason to love saving money at Walgreen’s, when you use your Balance Rewards card you can earn cash towards your purchases too! That’s even more money saved! That’s money that can be used to invest towards my next vacation, to buy anew pair of stylish shoes or more! I can’t wait to see how much I save on my next visit.
How much do you hope to save using the Walgreen’s app and paperless coupons this week?
