In a digital-driven age, sometimes it can seem nearly impossible to function and survive without a mobile phone.
Being without a phone can make you feel as if you have been cut off from your friends and family, and from other events happening around the world and your life. Not to mention that being constantly on your mobile phone is vital for a full time blogger like me.
But have you ever wondered about the pros of not having constant access to your phone? You’ll be having more time to focus on your goals and activities you love, and complete freedom.
Gin Mare – the premium gin brand known for its Mediterranean roots – challenges the mobile addicted generation (me included) to disconnect and connect with life, with the launch of the first Daycare for mobile phones. The Daycare will take place during a weekend retreat in the luxurious Villa Mare in Ibiza, and will be totally free of charge. There the most technology-stressed people in Europe will undergo the ultimate mobile detox with their feet on the warm sand. Participants will come from several European countries to reconnect with the beauty and pleasures of offline life with a range of activities like yoga, dance and meditation on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Delicious cocktails and a pure Mediterranean menu are also integral part of the detox experience.
So, what are you waiting for? Enroll today at www.daycareformobilephones.com. Worry less, travel more! (the campaign ends on 25th of June, so hurry up!)
Participants need to pass the test and prove they can live 72 hours without their phones. For this challenge, they will receive a Stress Test Kit delivered to their door containing the necessary materials for a home-based mobile detox. The Stress Kit contains a special compartment where participants can put their beloved gadgets to rest for the 3-day period and a personalized hashtag, so friends can send them encouraging messages through Twitter and the Daycare website.
The winners who will get to go to the real digital detox in Ibiza are the ones who survive the 72-hour period without their phones and receive the most messages on both the Daycare website and on Twitter. See you all in Ibiza (minus your phones!)
