Finally, there’s an official word to describe those times when you completely unplug from all digital devices. Ironically, this word is listed only in the online dictionary, which can only be accessed from a digital device.
No matter. Travelers everywhere, rejoice! “Digital detox” is now a word in the Oxford Dictionary Online!
The term, along with quite a few others, was added to the (online) books on Wednesday. Its official definition reads:
digital detox (n): a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices such as smartphones or computers, regarded as an opportunity to reduce stress or focus on social interaction in the physical world:
break free of your devices and go on a digital detox
