Global connectivity levels are at an all time high, but life in the digital age is far from ideal. The majority of our time these days is spent staring at a screen. The negative psychological, social and cultural impact is real. Things need to change. The digital world doesn’t need to be toxic, and Zoojoobe is here to detoxify your digital and real life with the Digital Detox campaign. For eight wonderful weeks, you’ll have the time to pause, reflect and reconnect with what’s most important to you.
This life enhancing journey will have four challenges : Get Eight Hours of Sleep, Spend More Time With Family, Relive Your Hobby and Play Outdoor Games.
1. Get Eight Hours Of Sleep
||December 5- December 16||
Recent scientific studies show that a lack of sleep causes many significant changes in the body and increases your risk for serious health concerns such as obesity, disease, and even early death.
Sleep is an important function for many reasons. When you sleep, your brain signals your body to release hormones and compounds that help:
- decrease risk for health conditions
- manage your hunger levels
- maintain your immune system
- retain memory
Add ‘Get Eight Hours Of Sleep’ on the Zoojoobe Gameboard to start the habit. Earn points for updating regularly and stand a chance to win a cozy sleeping bag.
2. Spend More Time With Family
||December 19 – December 30||
What exactly does ‘quality time’ mean? It’s an expression we hear often but is hard to quantify – every family is different, and its meaning will vary from household to household.
For some people it may mean pulling out the board games once a week, for others it’s having in-depth conversations around the dinner table, and for some it may be enjoying a sport together.
Whatever it means to you, it’s essential that you make it a priority for yourself, your relationship and your family.
Add the habit ” Spend More Time With Family” on the Zoojoobe Gameboard, update regularly and stand a chance to win a cool pair of headphones to make the holidays even more cheerful.
3. Relive Your Hobby
||January 2- January 13||
A very Happy New Year in advance(or in the present, if you are reading this in 2017). It’s the time of the year when resolutions are made, and sadly, very soon ‘un-made’. This time however, Zoojoobe is here to make sure you sustain all your hobby related resolutions. Hobbies are very important for personal growth. We can work as much as we want but nothing compares with the satisfaction and enjoyment that one derives upon partaking in one’s favourite hobby. So go ahead, climb up to the attic, dig into the depths of the cupboard and retrieve that elusive set of paintbrushes or favourite Enid Blyton novel of yours. In this phase of Digital Detox, it’s time to “Relive Your Hobby”. Drag your hobby out from the past, add it to the Zoojoobe Gameboard, update regularly, earn points and win some brilliant books.
4. Play Outdoor Games
||January 16 – January 27||
Do you remember the old saying, all work and no play makes Jack/Jill a dull boy/girl? If you do, then it’s about time that you stopped spending a lot of time on your digital devices indoors and start kicking up a storm on the playing fields outdoors. Playing outdoor games comes with a host of benefits. Here are a few:
- It strengthens your muscles.
- It improves breathing and air circulation in the body.
- It increases endurance and blood circulation.
- It releases endorphins which make you feel happier.
All of that and much more goodness awaits you on the breezy, beautiful fields outdoors. So pump up those sneakers, strap up those headbands, grab the water bottle and “Play Outdoor Games”. Add the habit on the Zoojoobe gameboard, update regularly and stand a chance to win a fabulous football.
Come let’s reconnect with what’s most important to us. Head over to zoojoo.be and start your Digital Detox today.
