"Corny as it sounds, when the retreat was over, I felt cleansed. I hadn’t checked the news but I didn’t fear that the world had fallen apart. I felt recharged, not anxious about the work I’d missed."
"Three weeks later, I can’t quite believe I have managed to keep my tech use under control. Already I feel more connected and present during chats or out with friends"
"I found myself connecting much more deeply with the people around me. Without distractions, our conversations were much richer and more interesting."
"Small talk becomes big talk and silences become longer, more comfortable. It occurs to me how frantic technology makes me."
"Time to Log Off aren’t about disconnecting forever, they’re about remembering to disconnect when it matters."
“Doing this retreat has actually revealed just how unhealthy my internet obsession is. I've slept better, felt less stressed and had more energy. The retreat has given me some great ideas to help control my phone. I feel fantastic!”
“My expectations were very high but this exceeded them all. I feel like I have completely rebooted my life!”
“This really exceeded expectations. The food, company, setting. All of it was amazing - really serene. I think this will end up a vital experience for me. Thank you!”
"Time To Log Off offers retreats in places such as Hawaii, Italy and Cornwall. Perhaps for 2016 we should all have a go at stashing away our digital addictions ... and indulge in some good old analogue fun.
"This was a well-organised, friendly and worthwhile restorative. Blissful."
"We came away feeling astonishingly refreshed and restored. Our eyes have been well and truly opened to the extraordinary benefits and pleasures of a hiatus from the constant noise of information."
“It was so peaceful. I’m going to buy a non-smartphone to use at weekends and ask friends to call me instead of texting/Whatsaspp-ing!”
“I found the first day difficult but it subsided quickly. By the end of the break I didn’t want my phone back!”
“I loved it. After this, I’m going to get a landline and turn my mobile off for some weekends. I’m also going to take social media off my phone.”
“It was great to ‘lose’ my phone. I thought it would be stressful but it was surprisingly easy. I will definitely have down-time with technology in the future.”
“I wanted to test how I would react without my phone. Generally I felt much more relaxed and with better concentration. From this experience I know that I can live without my phone. I’m going to encourage other people in my life to develop this ability a bit more too!”
“A really great experience. I will be implementing a restricted phone and digital regime at home, i.e. no screens on a Sunday and no phones in the bedroom. I’ll also take off work email from my phone and be really mindful during the week of when I use the phone and Internet”.
"It was a revelation! I wasn’t aware how bad my digital addiction had become. Feel deliriously refreshed and restored – will definitely be incorporating regular technology breaks into my life. Everyone should!”
"Amazing! The experience made me realise how much I use my phone as a distraction. Not having my phone meant I could really escape from the stresses of everyday life. From now on I’m deleting work email from my phone at the weekends and I’ll be checking my phone a lot less regularly.”
