WHAT PEOPLE SAY
6 of us colleagues made a plan to attend the 3 day Digital Wellness Programme, and it was simply awesome. It totally changed the way we use technology, or as Bindiya says, "how we allow technology to use us." We came back to with really good insights into our relationship and usage of phones, internet and lappies, and our dependence patterns. In a short time, we learnt so much about balance, both internal and external in the virtual world. Amazing experience in the verdant Nilgiris.
I attended a seminar with Bindiyaji at the Tech Summit in Ahmedabad and it was a real eye-opener. She spoke about why tech is so addictive, what it does to our brains, relationships, work etc. I had never looked at it like that. Then she introduced us to the concept of digital wellness and how to practice it in our lives. The way she explained it was really simple and mindblowing. Normally speakers get very heavy on these topics but she made us laugh and gave good relatable examples. Her practical approach and tips for curtailing phone usage have actually helped me and my friends. We are lucky to have attended the seminar.
As a group of friends, we wanted to do something different. After looking at many options we found the novel JOMO Breaks, to explore the 'Joy of Missing Out'. We went for it, stayed in a beautiful cottage after handing over all our gadgets and embarked on the best 4 days we have ever had together. Bindiya guided us on how to move our focus from devices to the real stuff like conversations, singing, meditating, art, bonfires, cooking and learning the art of living in the moment. It's hard to describe how good that forced freedom from devices felt like. We all felt light, relaxed, happy and more bonded than ever. This is a MUST-DO with people you care about. Incredible!
My son was suffering from very bad phone addiction problems. He just couldn't leave his phone. If we tried to take it away he would get very angry, stop eating and breaking things. failed at college and was out. We had to offer him many incentives to make him agree to attend the Digital Detox Retreat It was 3 very hard weeks of ups and downs, bad moods, tantrums, him wanting to go back and threatening us. However, Bindiya handled it with great care and discipline. She never got angry or impatient and guided him week by week. to recovery. We could have never done it without her and hope that other parents take their children to her befoe it becomes this bad.
I went through a very stressful phase and was always angry and agitated. I was not sleeping well, always anxious, on my phone and never all there with my family. My wife kept saying I was married to my phone. I am grateful I found Bindiya's Digital Detox program, one of the best things that happened to me. It made me reconnect with myself along with rediscovering simple pleasures like nature, food, reading and I got to reflect on things I ignored for too long. I came back calmer, more present, receptive and energized. I am now diligently practising my daily 'Tech Free' hours. Feels wonderful.
