DigiPause was created to address the growing issue of online addiction and its negative effects on mental and physical health. The initiative was inspired by the creator’s own experience with addiction and the need for a harm-reduction based solution. Initially, DigiPause focused on offering programs, workshops, and social events that helped individuals disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with themselves.

However, as the demand for personalized, nature-based programs and places to disconnect grew, DigiPause evolved to offer a wide range of wellness experiences and solutions that can be adapted to anyone’s specific needs.

 Today, DigiPause is expanding its services by incorporating them into the hotel ecosystem, making it easier for individuals to take a break from the digital world and focus on their wellbeing.

A Valuable resource for anyone looking to improve their overall health and well-being by taking a break from the digital world.
