This past year we have picked up new talents and hobbies while quarantining, some good or some bad like binge-watching Netflix. Reviews.org is hosting a 24-hour digital detox challenge in which the challenger will be awarded $2,400 if they can give up their tech for a full 24 hours. Electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops, tablets, gaming consoles, and smartwatches are all off-limits. It also includes no Netflix, streaming, gaming, social media, texting, or online shopping.
Are you ready to pick up a book or complete a puzzle, maybe go on a nice long run? Below are the 24-hour Digital Detox Challenge details if you are willing to part from electronics for a whole 24 hours. I know I can’t!
Responsibilities and Requirements: The chosen digital detox challenger will be sent a safe to lock away their tech for the duration of the challenge (excluding any emergencies!) as well as a $200 Amazon gift card to put together a tech-less survival kit full of things like books and board games to stay busy.
After the 24 hours are up, the detoxer will prove that they completed the challenge by submitting screen time reports.
Where: The Digital Detox Challenge is available in both the US and Australia.
US residents can access the application here: https://www.reviews.org/internet-service/digital-detox-challenge/
Australian residents can apply here: https://www.reviews.org/au/technology/digital-detox-challenge/
When: Applications are open now through March 26th at 5:00pm MST so ask Alexa to “set a reminder” to apply while you still can!
Why: Reviews.org wants to see how taking a 24-hour break from tech impacts the stress level, mood, and future screen time habits of the digital detox challenger.
Good Luck to those that enter.
