This Christmas give yourself, or a loved one, the gift of a digital detox.
Today, our lives are so fast-paced. To keep up, we’ve integrated technology into almost everything we do and it’s helped…kind of.
From vacuums that operate themselves to TV’s that connect to the internet, digital technology can be pretty cool. Chatting with people on social networks, video calls, and having up-to-the-minute news and information at our fingertips makes us feel more connected. Technology certainly offers some excellent benefits, but sometimes it can be draining: VERY draining.
Too Many Push Notifications
Staying connected to your devices 24/7 definitely takes a toll. Push notifications, news alerts, and friend requests can be exhausting. The constant chime of your smartphone, especially this time of year, from emails, voicemails, and text messages can make your head spin. So, before you hit a breaking point and have a complete meltdown, plan a digital detox getaway. Where? Volcano, Hawaii!
Recharge in the Rainforest
Volcano, Hawaii, located on the Big Island near Mount Kilauea is the perfect spot to unplug and relax. This secluded and peaceful location will revitalize your spirit. Who wouldn’t feel completely rejuvenated after staying in a pristine rainforest? The lush vegetation and fresh tropical air will reawaken your soul.
Stay at one of our three eco-friendly properties just minutes from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. Located within the last percentages of virgin Hawaii rainforest, our resort is a retreat made for guests looking to unwind and disconnect from the chaos of everyday life. Here you can:
