It's completely free to join our pledge, join thousands of others who all believe in the power of taking a techtimeout



join the digital wellbeing revolution

Technology is advancing faster than ever before, and we recognise the need for individuals, families and workplaces to adapt. At techtimeout, we believe in the power of raising awareness of the impact our current use of technology is having on our wellbeing, and embracing change to support and empower individuals and workplaces to work healthily and productively.

technology for good

We're not anti-tech; we're pro-responsibility. Technology offers incredible opportunities and connects us like never before.

We celebrate when technology is harnessed for the greater good.

restoring the balance

Technology doesn't need to dominate our lives.

More hours don't always equal more output. By managing our digital habits, we can reclaim our focus, set boundaries, increase productivity, work smarter, not longer and regain control over our digital devices.

together, we're stronger

By being conscious of our own digital habits, we can positively influence others too and be aware of the impact we have on others.

We know that by working together, we can influence businesses and inspire others to reassess their relationships with screens.

what are people saying

We truly believe in the benefits of techtimeout, but don’t just take our word for it.

Simon Blake

“So much of our time both at work and at home is spent on phones and computers, with notifications popping up here, there, and everywhere. Technology has so much power for good, but only if we also know how to step away from it and give our brain and body the chance to both enjoy the power of connection with people, nature, and rest.

At MHFA England®, we are proudly paving the way for positive mental health in the workplace, and as part of our approach to wellbeing we will be partnering with techtimeout to host this year's digital wellbeing day ‘techtimeout tuesday’ on 28 November to encourage improvements in our digital habits, and we'll be encouraging our network of Mental Health First Aiders to get involved too."
