Thank you for being a part of Phone Free Day

19/3 2021

Many people feel that we spend too much time on our phone, learn how we are changing this.

A day to get more out of life by using your phone smarter

We challenge you to make Phone Free Day whatever works for you from intro level to full detox. Bring on board friends, family, colleagues and have fun while challenging yourselves to use your phones in a more mindful way. 

Participation is open to anyone who wants to experiment with their phone habits to focus better and be healthier. 

Phone Free Day is a non-profit grass root initiative to raise awareness on how smartphone overuse is affecting us, and support participants to change their habits.

Join us for Phone Free Day March 19th 2021. 

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?

Use the phone - don't let it use you.
