DIGITAL DETOX: DC woman pledges to quit social media for a year

- If you had the opportunity to disconnect from social media for 365 days, would you give it a try? D.C. education advocate Darla Bunting has started a digital detox for 2016.

For the next year, the 30-year-old tells Good Day DC that she is giving up social media to reconnect with herself. That means no Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter.

“I thought that I needed to make a major change and eliminate some distractions that are in my life,” Bunting said.

She previously took a month-long detox last September with her church, which she says made her feel more energized.

“Often when we’re so connected, we don’t get a chance to rest our minds and rest our brains,” said Bunting.

During her free time, she said she hopes to get more exercise.
