导读:如今我们似乎越来越离不开手机等各种电子产品了:上班上学路上、吃饭时、睡觉前,我们都在刷手机,这甚至还成了不少人度过假日的方式。如果你也是重度电子产品依赖者,不妨试着来一场“数码排毒”吧?

Most people today constantly use their smartphone. FILE PHOTO
It’s that time of the year again: school has started in full swing, homework is piling up and you realize that you can’t possibly wait for summer next year.
每年的这个时刻又来了:学校课业紧张繁忙、作业堆积如山,你发现自己已经迫不及待想要过来年的暑假了。

“I need a holiday,” you may be thinking.
“我需要个假期,”你或许会这么想。

But wait – is it a holiday that you truly need? When we think of holidays, we think of traveling, beaches, fun, and adventure. But the reality is, we spend most of our holidays on our personal devices. Smartphones have taken the world by storm, influencing the manner we interact with each other. Does this sound like you? If so, it sounds like you need a digital detox.
等等 —— 你真的需要这样一个假期吗?当我们想到“假期”一词时,我们脑海中会冒出旅游、海滩、玩乐以及冒险这样的字眼。但事实却是,我们把大多数假期都花在了使用个人电子设备上。智能手机席卷了全世界,影响着我们与他人互动的方式。这么说是否戳中的你的膝盖?如果是的话,你或许需要来一场“数码排毒”。

One of the best things about a digital detox is the fact that anyone can do it. Whether you are a businessman or a student, everyone needs some time away from technology.
数码排毒最大的一个好处就在于所有人都可以一试。不论你是个商人还是学生,每个人都需要远离科技一段时间。

Having a tech-free holiday is becoming increasingly popular especially among families because it enables them to spend quality time with each other without being distracted by texting, emails, and social media.
来一场没有科技产品的假期正日益变得流行起来,尤其是在家庭之中。因为这能让家庭成员们享受彼此之间的宝贵时光,不受短信、邮件以及社交媒体的打扰。

It may seem that sending a quick text message or uploading a photo to WeChat doesn’t take so much time, but these things eventually add up without us even knowing it.
尽管发一条简短的短信,或者用微信上传一张照片似乎花不了多少时间,但这些事情不知不觉间积少成多。

It was discovered in a study conducted by travel site LastMinute.com that 90 percent of Britons spend more than four hours a day using their gadgets while they are on holiday.
由旅游网站LastMinute.com 发起的一项研究发现,90%的英国人在度假时每天花在电子产品上的时间超过了4小时。

Whether to give yourself a digital detox is a difficult decision to make, but it may be just the thing you need to cleanse your mind, body, and soul.
是否要给自己来场数码排毒是个艰难的抉择,但要想洗涤自己的思想、身体以及灵魂,这或许正是你所需之事。

To help you along, it is probably a good idea to choose a remote area, somewhere close to nature, where you can truly immerse yourself and unwind, and most importantly, not be tempted to switch on your smartphone.
要来一场数码排毒,选择靠近大自然的遥远地区或许是个好主意。在那里,你可以让自己彻底放松,沉浸其中,而最重要的是,克制住自己打开智能手机的诱惑。

Taking a tech-free holiday would be a good time to pick up something new, or return to hobbies which you never had time for. You could sketch the view of the coast, or take photos with your old film camera. If you’re going with friends or family, perhaps bring along some board games to spend time rekindling tired relationships.
来一场没有科技产品的假期正是一个大好时机,你可以尝试新事物,或是重拾一些你没有时间尝试的业余爱好。你可以为海岸边的风景画张速写,用老式的胶卷相机拍照。如果你和朋友或者家人一同出行,或许还可以带上一些棋类游戏,重拾疏离的关系。

In today’s fast paced world, it’s important to find time to stop and smell the roses – without taking a selfie at the same time, that is.
在今天这个快节奏的世界里,找时间停下来细嗅蔷薇 —— 而不是自拍,这点十分重要。
