She added that the experience wasn't easy because of the constant urge to check out what's happening. She said: "It wasn't easy, though, thanks to the pervasive nature of social media, and the constant urge to check out what's happening."

"So I blocked the websites on my computer and deleted the apps off of my phone,' she said. 'So there was not a way for me to check. That made it incredibly easier for me."

Bunting started her 'digital detox' journey on January 1, 2016 and she is ready to get back out there and pick up on all she missed.
