6 bloggers are taking part in the Asda Mobile Digital Detox Challenge – pop over and see what this is all about, I start tomorrow morning for 7 days and will keep you updated with how I am doing via the PC as I will be unable to access the internet during the day on my phone!
Did you know that on average we check our phones 85 times per day and spend around 3 hours, actively, on the internet! The study carried out by the Huffington Post also found that we receive more than 100 emails per day too. What is the first thing you do on a morning and last thing on a night? If you’re like me then you check your phone – its second nature now!
Thanks to this fabulous challenge set by Asda I have been sent an archaic throw back of a phone which resembles something I had in my late teens – oh the joys, I can remember it well, the only time it rang was when mum didn’t know where I was, there was no such thing as ‘social media’ as it is now and no where near the games and distractions! Life was so much simpler and its about to become it again!
The infographic below shows the Hows and Whys of this project. I have 7 days to see if I can rely on good old fashioned pen and paper diary instead of digital alarms to remind me I should be somewhere, it also means that when I am out and about it will stop me from checking the internet etc thus making my days out more focussed and productive without the distractions of Twitter and Instagram!
As you can see this can either go one of two ways, one… I realise just how little time I really do need to spend online and I end up with oodles of spare hours in the day… OR two… You find me on Sunday rocking in the corner from lack of social interaction!
If you fancy joining me on this challenge for 24 hours then all you need to do is link up your blog post in the comment section below with details of how you did! Remember to link to my blog in your post and also to the Asda Mobile Digital Detox page so that others know about the challenge too!
*This is a collaborative post, I was sent an Alcatel Mobile phone to use for the purposes of this project*
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
