We, (me and u/mindfultech) started this subreddit at the end of February, having become increasingly aware of how addicted we are to our phones and screens.

Is it ironic to suggest to people to go offline, online? I mean, where else do we reach these people?

We decided to start this community, an instagram and facebook community as well. We ran some campaigns on google and FB (invested like 400 bucks) and created some videos to motivate and inspire people to do what is actually not so easy these days... Go Offline for 24 hours, consciously.

The first official OfflineDay happened on a Friday to Saturday, first of March, 2019 (sundown until sundown).

Thousands of people joined us. Many from the community, posted, wrote and, shared their stories, talked about their habits, addictions, issues and successes! Essentially, it was clear that it really resonated with people.

We just wanted to say thank you to all of you here who are part of this community. Thank you for sharing, for posting for upvoting the daily challenges and speaking out. We are happy to continue to take some of that on-screen time for this.

Best,

u/facepalmed & u/mindfultech

I find it ironic that I set a reminder on my online calendar for offline day.

Though if an event isn't on my Outlook (work) calendar, I'm not going to remember. But that's probably another issue.

Unplugging: A digital detox experiment

The best lesson that came from a day of unplugging is that when you go offline, you will find things to do that are almost always more rewarding than the usual go-to mindless online activities. By unplugging, we allow ourselves to just be without our digital devices and online platforms cluttering our mind.

Disconnect from our distractions and connect with ourselves. We want to extend the awareness to go offline, or off the screen from time to time. It's about breaking routines to gain some perspective. Jomo, the joy of missing out.
