who are techtimeout?
We're concerned that there's an unhealthy addiction to technology in society. At techtimeout, we've made it our mission to help individuals and workplaces have healthier relationships with technology.
We need technology to work and live which means we need good habits and boundaries that help us use it sustainably. We don't hate technology but we believe that you can have too much of a good thing. 24/7 connection, digital distractions and mindless overuse is leaving us feeling burnt out and unproductive.
We're here with the tools and resources to change this but we need your help to raise awareness and make positive change.
This is why we're asking you to share our message using #techtimeouttuesday and pledge some time away from technology on Tuesday 30th November, 2021.
