Imaging yourselves in the Moroccan desert, stripped of all your electronic devices, with bunch of people you do not know. The only thing the group has in common is that they are high level professionals that in the ordinary life can not manage without being connected. For four days these 35 people stayed disconnected and researchers noticed that during this time both body posture and memory improved for the participants. Other progress was that they got better night sleep and started grow deeper relationships with other participants. Kate Unsworth, CEO of the research company that conducted the experiment says the following in an interview with Fast Company. “Reading these studies convinced me that we need to do something. But it will take more than just individuals unplugging periodically. It will take a change in social values and etiquette.” Source: Morocco World News and FastCompany
