Powering down our gadgetry has never been harder. Tapping and scrolling has become an essential part of life. However, constantly reacting to our phone’s pings is not good for our mental wellbeing. Wellfest is a gathering of likeminded people embracing a healthier way of living, and powering down the phone plays a big part in that.
From time to time it’s good to ditch the phone. Not only for our mental wellbeing but for the times when we need complete focus. Driving being the main one. Did you know you’re four times more likely to be in an accident when you use your phone behind the wheel? Even a quick glance at a notification can have serious repercussions. Your drive time should be your time, leave everything else aside. Toyota have been encouraging this with the Toyota Face it Down app, an initiative that rewards safe driving.
