Feifei
大家好,歡迎來到 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》節目。我是馮菲菲。

Neil
And I’m Neil.

Feifei
Oh. You don’t sound too good, Neil. What’s up? Are you sick?

Neil
I feel sick.

Feifei
What are the symptoms?

Neil
OK, Dr Feifei. Here we go: I can’t sleep. I feel anxious all the time. I can’t concentrate on anything. I have itchy eyes. I’m tired. My neck hurts and I have terrible headaches.

Feifei
啊,我看出你的問題了。你是不是一天到晚低著頭,看手機?

Neil
Yeah – all the time.

Feifei
是不是吃飯、睡覺、連上廁所都帶著手機?

Neil
Yes, yes, of course, yes! What’s this got to do with how awful I feel?

Feifei
You need a detox. 

Neil
A detox? But I haven’t drunk any alcohol for months. I exercise every day. I only eat organic food.

Feifei
你需要來一個 “digital detox”。A digital detox is a period of time away from all devices that can connect to the internet. 簡單地說,a digital detox 就是放下手機,遠離社群網路,給自己來一個 “數字排毒”。

Neil
I can’t do that! It’s impossible! I’ll get even worse! What if someone likes my status at 4am and I miss it?

Feifei
Now that is a sign you’re addicted. You really do need a digital detox. Let’s hear some examples.

Examples
My phone broke the day I went on holiday which forced me to have a digital detox. I felt so relaxed.

I spend all day and night on Saturdays on social media so I need a digital detox every Sunday or I’m too tired to go to work on Monday.

Right, here’s the key to the safe that I’ve locked all my gadgets in. I’m going to do this digital detox even if it kills me!

Feifei
這裡是 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》節目。我的搭檔 Neil 可是個名副其實的 “低頭族”。他一天到晚離不了手機、看平板、工作時還用電腦。這不,把自己給搞病了。

Neil
And Dr Feifei here has prescribed a strict digital detox.

Feifei
We use the word ‘detox’ more generally to describe a period when you stop doing something harmful – like drinking too much alcohol or eating junk food.

Neil
And so a digital detox is a break from all electronic gadgets. OK, well, here’s my phone, Feifei.

Feifei
I’ll deal with that.

Neil
Oh… Well, I suppose it’s for the best. Bye.

Feifei
Dr Feifei always knows best.
