UK Unplugging Day is a UK-wide 24 hour break from the digital world to enable us to disconnect from our devices and reconnect with our family, friends, loved ones and communities in real life. Although we’d like to encourage everyone to Put down their devices all day we know that it can be daunting at first with all that FOMO! So we suggest everyone starts by making a conscious and mindful effort to use their screens less during the day – with the goal of building up over time to a full day off devices. We know that if you try even small steps towards a digital detox you’ll love the results. Give it a go!
Rediscover the power of real-world connections by unplugging on UK Unplugging Day.

“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”.
"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.
“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!”
