For better or worse, we’re tied to our smartphones. On average, 71% of Americans check their phones in the first 10 minutes of waking up in the morning. And forget taking a break while you run errands—3 in 4 Americans say they feel uneasy leaving their phones at home. And that’s just phones. Between computers, watches, tablets, and more, we’re constantly bombarded with videos, photos, and other content that demands our attention.
If this sounds like your life, it might be time to consider a digital detox aka stepping away from your tech for a while. We know it’s hard to take even a day away from work, school, socializing, games, and the endless scrolling and streaming online … but what if we could make it worth the effort?
For the second year in a row, we’d like to give someone $2,400 to take a break and go 24 hours without technology.
