welcome to the 

no phone challenge

No Phone Challenge. It’s easy to make yourself feel bad for being addicted to your phones and mindless scrolling. However, the tech companies have invested billions of dollars in literally hacking our brains so that they can create sophisticated algorithms that feed us individually crafted content meant to keep us angry, scared, jealous, wanting, and constantly engaged with their platforms. Thus keeping your eyeballs on their advertisers and maximizing their profits. This addiction to our screens has been a catalyst for an unprecedented rise in mental health challenges across all age groups and demographics. One of the biggest tragedies is that it has made it very difficult for many of us to be able to practice being present and engaged in “the real world” and with the environment actually around us. It’s time to get our phone time and “real-world” time back into balance.

So what can we do to break the addiction and its mental health impact while also bringing awareness to the positive aspects of regularly unplugging? By hacking our own subconscious. By taking back conscious sovereignty of our own minds. By resetting our brains back to “factory settings”. By reconditioning ourselves in a conscious, positive way through taking part in Legendary Life’s “No Phone Challenge” (#LLNoPhoneChallenge).

The “No Phone Challenge” is fun, positive, easy-to-participate-in, and for all-ages. We are encouraging our entire community and beyond to consider participating in this important challenge. The Legendary Life No Phone Challenge is designed to encourage and incentivize people to a) create a regular practice of turning their phone off and disconnecting from technology for a certain amount of time each day, and b) refrain from using their phone while performing certain activities which would normally involve high utilization of their device.

Legendary Life will provide you with all the free tools, technology, and framework of suggested rules you need to successfully tackle this challenge while at the same time having fun, spreading awareness about an important topic and promoting some friendly competition across your communities.

This challenge isn’t anti-phone or anti-tech, anti-corporate or anti-anything. All of these things can be positive when used consciously as tools. However, they aren’t positive when they are effectively using you. One of the goals of this challenge is for you to consciously deprogram yourself to once again see your phone, its apps, and the content it connects you to as simply tools to enhance you, educate you, and connect you to people, places, and things in “the real world.”
