Does the idea of disconnecting from the global data flow make you anxious? There’s not an app for that, but there are options for tech junkies who want to unplug and get centered.


San Francisco, California–based Digital Detox offers multiday retreats in a variety of tranquil settings, including California’s Mendocino Coast and, for the more adventurous, a deserted island in Cambodia. Geared toward both individuals and groups, the outfit offers fully customizable corporate retreats designed to take the edge off of burnout and return people refreshed and renewed by way of creativity workshops, personal development, meditation, team building, and more.

At US$500 to US$1,500 per person, it’s not inexpensive. But lowering your anxiety may be priceless.
