I want to be more conscious and aware of how I use my phone, technology and social media on a daily basis and maybe you do too...…?!
Thanks for stopping by to check out what Mindful You is all about!
The Phone Bag is the first product to be launched. It's a calico drawstring bag designed to hold your phone when you need time offline either with family & friends, for yourself or when focusing on something and you don't want to be distracted. Aiming to support real connection, feeling good, switching off and doing what you love.
Addiction and distraction online can lead to a feeling of isolation and loneliness, therefore impacting our mental ill-health. I want to support your mental health along with our community too so $1 from every sale is donated to LIVIN - a nonprofit organisation creating awareness around mental health.
Technology and social media are such a huge part of life these days, bringing both positives and negatives but the one thing that really stands out for me is the disconnection they cause. Whether it be consciously or unconsciously, so many of us are addicted and have created such strong habits when it comes to our devices.
Connection is one of my top values, as it is for so many. I feel we crave it even more these days in a world which is becoming more and more disconnected. Depending how we use social media, it can heighten this feeling of disconnection. It may seem that we are more connected than ever however studies show we are actually feeling more alone.
This product was created to inspire and support those who feel guilt, disconnection and anxiety from being addicted to their phone, social media &/or work. Also for parents who want to create more connection in their family and set healthy boundaries around the use of their phone.
If you resonate with any of the below this product is for you:
Constantly feel the pull to be online and find it hard to switch off
Feel disconnected and crave connection and community
Regret of time poorly spent through habit and/or distraction on your phone
Would like to feel more present and calm
Value how you spend your time
Have moments when you catch yourself and think 'What am I actually doing online' and you've spent the last 1hr scrolling
A few questions to ponder:
When you are offline, check in, how do you feel?
When you are online, check in, how do you feel?
A few Statistics that inspired me to create Mindful You products as I believe social media and disconnection play a huge part in mental ill-health:
1 in 5 adults will experience mental health problems this year
1 in 4 adolescents experience mental ill-health
65% of adolescents will not seek help for mental health
1 in 7 primary school kids experience mental ill-health
