Did Janne survive her second week?
13/12/2019

I gave up my phone for 14 days (experiment) Week 2

Janne survived her first week without any social media. She experienced loneliness and felt the urge to post things on social media. Did she get used to life without any social media in week two or did things just get worse?

Life without a smartphone doesn’t need to be bad. Research shows us 3 important conclusions when people don’t use a smartphone:

  1. They have more time for other people
  2. They don’t miss their online friends
  3. They have more time for themselves

Check our video below to see if Janne found out the same effects.
