Mindhood flips the current tech culture through mindful digital habits and in-person relationships resulting in happier, healthier communities.
Mindhood is teaming with The LookUp Challenge
LookUp.live is a non-profit startup to inspire young adults to find balance between their screen and non-screen lives and engage others in the process. While some find it easy to balance, others find that balance is harder to achieve, which is why many of us can’t do it alone. We need our friends.
After many conversations with teens, college students and recent grads, one of the biggest barriers to taking a break from social media is “fear of missing out” on stuff. FOMO is HUGE! We get it.
So, we’re wondering if you take a break with friends–does that make it easier?
We would love if you would participate in this pilot study from July 15-22; you’ll help us find out if “finding balance” is helped when a group of friends take that challenge together.
of our students report being happier using technology with intention. Mindhood can help.
Over the course of the last eleven years, cell phones have shifted the way students communicate. Are we building authentic and intentional relationships? Research shows a direct correlation between tech use and an increase in depression being reported.
What We Do
Mindhood takes traditional mindfulness training into the digital age. When people are able to recognize the correlations between their digital habits and their time and energy management skills, it impacts their mood, focus and productivity. When done in tandem with peer communities, they report an increase in happiness.
Mindhood at Dartmouth
Over the summer of 2018, nearly 200 students put down their phones, practiced mindfulness and were offered daily challenges to do more in community, with their peers.
