Asda Mobile Digital Detox Challange
Think back to before you went to bed last night, what was the last thing you did before closing your eyes and drifting off to Neverland? Was it watching TV, hug your partner or check your smartphone? We would guess it was the latter of those. A study carried out by the Huffington Post discovered that the average person checks their phone 85 times a day, receives just over 100 emails and spends around three hours, actively, on the internet – so you can imagine why we would assume the last thing you do on an evening is check your phone.
We all know that spending too much time on your smartphone is not good for you that’s why we decided to set up an Asda Mobile Digital Detox Challenge with people whose whole life is contained on their smartphone, bloggers!
After reaching out to a handful of carefully selected bloggers we picked the top six that would benefit from taking part in a digital detox.
Meet the Bloggers

The bloggers are issued with a basic mobile phone that allows calls and texts along with a pay as you go Asda Mobile sim card. They have to manage without using their smartphone for any social activity including browsing the web and taking photos.
The aim of the challenge is to find out what the advantages and disadvantages are of going back to basics and using a mobile phone for its original purpose, to make and receive calls and texts. However, it is also for the bloggers to discover more about themselves and their habits.
We believe the challenge will help with the following:
Being more focused on daily tasks without the distraction of social media
Benefit the mind and body
Allow you to have a more productive, uninterrupted day
Broaden horizons through reading and taking in the surroundings.
Why don’t you join our bloggers in a mini challenge and see if you can manage without your smartphone for 24 hours. This way you will get a taster of what our challengers are going through!
