Why Phone Free Day
75% of us feel addicted to our phones and we average over 3 hours per day on them.
Maybe you have experienced stress, neck or thumb pain, or perhaps scrolled away much longer than you intended? Disturbed sleep, increased stress and anxiety, disability to focus on work and studies, conflicts with friends and family, and decreased physical wellbeing are some of the common effects of smartphone overuse.
Want to know how attached you really are to your phone?
So do we mean that you should throw your smartphones away? No.
It means that we need to change 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.
Phone Free Day is not all or nothing, you create your own level of challenge that works for you. We want to support you to start your journey to a healthy phone use and reap the benefits!
Are you ready?
