Why Phone Free Day
75% of us feel addicted to our phones and we average over 3 hours per day on them.
This is not a problem in itself but the consequences can be. Disturbed sleep, increased stress and anxiety, disability to focus at work and studies, conflicts with friends and family, physical wellbeing, are some of the common effects of smartphone overuse.
Does that mean that we should throw the smartphones away? No.
It means that we need to be smarter with how we use them.
It means that we need to use this piece of technology as a tool in an intentional and mindful way, as opposed to mindlessly scrolling.
We want to support you to start your journey to a healthy phone use and reap the benefits!
How attached are you to your phone?
