For most of us, our phones and devices have been an extension of ourselves.

Our phones have become so personal that we depend on it to put some sort of order in our lives. Nowadays we have an app for everything, from booking our ride home to delivering our food and even running our business. But from time to time, we need to detach ourselves from our phones and go on a digital detox. Question is, how long can you last?
