Data from our Offliners

Since open in 2016, we have been collecting feedback from our super star guests, regarding the feeling of being offline, the perception of stress levels, and the overall experience so we could strengthen the concept and improve the experience.

The experience of what exactly?

Of being in the presence of one another without the anxiety of looking at our screens. Dealing with silent moments without reaching our pockets for the emergency exit, and feel comfortable with it. Having full attention when one is talking, for having no distractions. Not being lost in the middle of a conversation because in the meanwhile we´ve got a whatsapp notification of a group with 17 people. Hiking to an outstanding viewpoint and enjoy it with our eyes 100% and not loose 1 second with a picture. This too. Of course we also like pictures, we do take them, we just promote not going to a place only for the purpose of the picture.

So here some facts we felt like sharing, all from our guests:

  • 94% reported a high importance of being offline in their mental health and well being
  • 70% stated they connected more with who was around them because they didn´t have their phones
  • 65% perceived a high decrease of stress levels while offline
  • 96% showed they would do a digital detox again

Apart from this, we also collected some tips that came directly from our super star guests, to whom we always go to for co-creation and input. We share them here so you can adopt them if you feel like you need some strategies in your life:

  • Place the phone in a different room from the bedroom when going to bed (meaning it will be useful to get an old school alarm clock)
  • Set a time per day to check the social media (instead of checking it all the time. This goes with all the notifications being off)
  • Have an offline day every week
  • Switch off all internet data on your phone when you get home every evening

And then the most rewarding fact on top of these strategies, that we really wanted to get from our Offliners, for the self-awareness, comes the deep perception of how much we all use our phones. This is the goal at the end.

As the perspective of being offline is meant to be an everyone´s movement, we highly appreciate the contribution of every single person in this journey at the Offline House, and aim to plant the seed of this agent of behavioural change that all of us can be.

So Offline House will keep on spreading the magic of connection, the bonds between different people, and the mindfulness behind it. All are welcome!
