Why we came together:
Mindhood came about because the human experience has shifted dramatically since the advent of the cell phone. Technology and social media overuse have taken a debilitating toll on society:
- 89% of college students report sleeping with their phone and answering texts in the middle of the night.
- 50% of teens report being addicted to their cell phones.
- 64% of adults surveyed said they “felt overwhelming anxiety” when they didn’t have access to their cell phones.
- Since the introduction of the cell phone, reports of clinical depression have increased 70%.
What we are doing:
Mindhood helps people flip the current tech-addicted culture with in-person digital wellness trainings focused on mindful practices, mindful use of your phone or mindful relationships for example, in conjunction with a proprietary texting platform for support.
Mindhood users participate in groups (for example: a work team, a fraternity or sorority, a team, or a parent group) and receive daily texts that offer the opportunity to reflect on mood with an emoji, state a daily intention and gratitude, and participate in fun, mini challenges with peers. The emojis are aggregated anonymously in a pie chart to display the overall mood of the group.
We are currently rolling out at colleges, companies, and organizations nationally. Contact us to participate!
