Here at techtimeout we want to restore the balance between time online and offline for individuals and workplaces. Technology is wonderful but 24/7 connection can be overwhelming. By finding a healthy balance with it you can feel better and learn to manage digital distractions.
We challenge you to take on the techtimeout10 challenge to start reaping the benefits of a healthier relationship with technology.
Once you begin, let us know your favourite activity and why. The challenge sounds easy but it can highlight your dependency on your devices.
It’s time to reconnect with friends and family and pick up activities that you may not have found time for recently.
So, remember to take a well-deserved break and enjoy your techtimeout!
