Digital Detox on National Unplugging Day!

The Glass House Retreat Challenges Guests & Staff to Dare to Digitally Detox - 4th March is ‘National Day of Unplugging’

The 4th March is the ‘National Day of Unplugging’, a day when we are encouraged to ditch our smartphones and other devices in order to completely digitally detox from constant social media feeds, notifications and emails.

With this in mind, The Glass House Detox and Wellness Retreat, based in the heart of the Essex countryside is challenging it’s guests and staff to ‘dare to digitally detox’ for 24 hours on 4th March and to report back on any mental, emotional and physical benefits as a result.

The retreat is the ideal place to head to for a complete digital detox, as it promotes total mind and body wellness under one roof as one of the UK's leading spa retreatsoffering transformative programmes for post-pandemic wellness and emotional fitness.  It is regularly attended by guests including Leigh Anne Pinnock from Little Mix, Strictly’s Diane Buswell and many Love Islanders!

Mericia Chapman, General Manager from The Glass House Retreat said: “We believe in offering our guests the chance to switch off from the stresses of modern society, and provide a unique in-room mobile phone safe which has a timer so that they can digitally detox. However, not all guests choose to use this, so we are challenging all those staying on 4th March, as well as day-spa guests and staff, to ‘dare to digitally detox’ and notice the positive effects!”
