In today’s daily life we have swapped meaningful moments for distraction. We use our phones to numb the pain instead of protecting time to recover. Our aim is to help you establish one moment per day to focus on what you find meaningful. When we focus better life becomes easier. Reduce stress, enhance focus and strengthen relationships. This is how it works;
1. Plan a simple daily restorative focus moment each day for one week. Free of your phone and distraction.
2. Using techniques from behavioural science we help you plan your week and nudge you into action each day.
3. Establish a useful habit that helps strengthen your focus muscle, making it easier to focus on what matters most to you.
Reducing guilt and stress, enhancing focus and strengthening relationships.
What the studies tell us:
* In the UK we check our phones 50-150 times per day. What else do we do 50 times per day?
* Distraction, due to phone checking, erodes trust in relationships.
* Mobile phones make it harder for us to focus on important tasks - the addictive nature of phone use has been likened to smoking and cocaine.
* We use phones to escape uncomfortable feelings, leaving difficult thoughts and emotions unresolved.
* When we train our focus muscle to focus on what gives us meaning, we reduce stress and strengthen our focus muscle.
Phones are a useful part of our lives. Our aim is to help you establish the habit of disconnecting for short moments to restore focus. We think the most effective way to do that is to help you create a moment each day for a High Quality Pause and something that gives you a sense of meaning. Our recipe is a simple combination of behavioural science, neuroscience and attention training (how neuroscience describes mindfulness). Helping you create a shield to protect you from difficult moments.
Phones keep our thinking locked into one way of seeing the world and seeing ourselves. Short moments away from our phones to focus on something that gives us meaning, helps us reduce stress and reset our perspective. To recognise that each of us is a good person, doing our best. To appreciate the good things already in our life. To understand the self criticism we apply to ourselves is unfair, makes us less effective and life feel worse. A little time each day to pause helps us ‘tidy the house within ourselves’. Reseting our perspective can have profound changes for the rest of our life. How satisfying is it to clear a window or a lens? We only did one thing but yet everything looks a little different.
