A Morning Without Technology for at least five hours, one day a year, is our mission.
I Need a Break!
Smartphone addiction can not only potentially break down our personal relationships, but it can drain our energy as we frantically search for the next thing to search for. If you’ve reached the point where you realise you need a break, it is a good time to start making rules about where and when you (and your family) will use smartphones. A morning with no technology allows us to take a small, significant step towards being in control of our smartphone addiction.
Our Mission: A Morning Without Technology
When we spend a morning with no technology, we realise that it is possible to do and has amazing benefits. Our mission is to hold one morning a year without technology. You can scale this up to one morning a month, a week, or one hour a day – perhaps during supper.
In your own world, you can make our future generations aware that there is a whole wide world outside of our smartphones, video games and tablets. A world that still has much wonder an mystery and deserves a look every now and then. They can learn the value of human interaction, and how it can and should be supplemented by technology, not replaced by it.
We all need a break from our smartphone addiction every so often to connect (or re-connect as the case may be) with the beauty of the world around us. We guarantee that you will find it a very rewarding experience once you have worked past the withdrawal symptoms!

The Mood Off Day is an idea. An idea born out of the startling transformation witnessed in the world around us. We were just a bunch of nine-to-fivers trying to worm their way up the ladder of success, but every now and then we sat back and wondered whether society could keep up pace with the pace of technological innovation. Retarding the proliferation of technology seemed inherently futile (Don’t get us wrong. We love technology. Technology fills our bank accounts!), but we thought the breakneck pace of technology around us could do with a momentary pause and a deep breath every now and then.
Need a Break From Smartphone Addiction?
A study by the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology published in June 2011 suggest that Smartphone users often check their phones for periods peaking at thirty seconds approximately every ten minutes. An hour a day just checking our smartphones, not even using them…
