Unplugging [2022] with Eva Longoria and Matt Walsh is on Netflix.

This movie is about something that would be useful for many of us… unplugging our devices. We meet Eva Longoria and Matt Walsh, a married couple, who are living next to one another without intimacy. The only intimacy they experience is the time they spend with their phones, and to solve the problem, they decide to go away for a weekend to a location without cell phone or cell phone coverage. Will this solve the problems in their marriage?

Above you can see the official trailer of the movie. This might not be a typical blockbuster Hollywood-movie, but it is a feel-good movie that many will see because they remember and loved the company of Eva Longoria in Desperate Housewives.

We all know that this is not going to be a movie with a deep meaning. Instead, this is a feel-good movie that will make you laugh and probably realize that we all need some detoxing from our wildly attractive cellphones and busy lives.

Do you think it sounds cool to watch the movie on Netflix? Unplugging turned available on Netflix in the middle of March 2024, and you can currently watch the movie on Netflix in Colombia, Mexico, and Argentina. If you live elsewhere, my best advice is to follow the instructions in this article to find out how you can access Mexican Netflix abroad.

Why would anyone get such a crazy idea to go on a digital detox for a weekend?

Here you have some of the common reasons for doing a digital detox. These ideas are general ideas, so they do not really have anything to do with the movie, besides the fact that many of the reasons are the same reasons as Eva Longoria and Matt Walsh use in the movie.

  1. Mental Health: Constant exposure to screens and digital devices can contribute to stress, anxiety, and feelings of overwhelm. Taking a break allows individuals to recharge mentally and emotionally.
  2. Physical Health: Excessive screen time can lead to physical health issues such as eye strain, headaches, and disrupted sleep patterns. Detoxing from screens provides an opportunity for rest and relaxation, potentially improving overall well-being.
  3. Improved Relationships: Excessive device use can strain personal relationships by reducing face-to-face interaction and quality time spent with loved ones. Disconnecting allows people to focus on meaningful connections with family and friends.
  4. Increased Productivity: Constant notifications and distractions from digital devices can hinder productivity and focus. By disconnecting, individuals can dedicate uninterrupted time to tasks and activities, potentially increasing productivity.
  5. Reconnecting with Nature: Digital detoxes often involve spending time outdoors and engaging in activities such as hiking, camping, or simply enjoying nature. This allows people to reconnect with the natural world and experience the benefits of being outdoors.
  6. Mindfulness and Presence: Constant digital stimulation can detract from being present in the moment. Detoxing allows individuals to practice mindfulness and fully engage with their surroundings without distractions.
  7. Setting Boundaries: Taking regular breaks from screens helps establish healthy boundaries with technology and encourages moderation in digital usage.

Doesn’t this sound cool? I sure think it does.
