How long do you reckon you could handle life without a mobile? Twenty minutes tops? Ten? Based on our personal, rather illuminating experience of downloading apps that monitor how long we spend on our phone every day (stats say millennials check their mobile 150 times), we hazard that it's about three-and-a-half minutes before we start getting the sans-mobile sweats.
So it is with great trepidation - although knowing it's fully for our own good - that we head to N.Bar this week; the DXB-based salon that has just lauched a Digital Detox menu to lock away our offending technology for a full (gulp) 90 minutes while we enjoy a wee bit of pampering.
From hot candle-therapy manis to a head, neck and shoulder massage, N.Bar offer guided meditation while you get your body admin done, allowing you to take a break from comparing yourself to other people on Insta and practice some mindfulness instead. Now that's what we call self-care.
