Get Paid $2,400 To Take A Digital Detox

Think you can survive a day without your tech?

Did you know that 71% of Americans check their smartphones within 10 minutes of waking up? Not to mention that 3 in 4 Americans feel anxious when they leave their phones at home. If that doesn’t prove we’re addicted to technology, I don’t know what does.

That’s why one company is looking to find someone willing to take the plunge and step back into the stone age—at least for 24 hours.

Taking A Break is giving a few lucky detoxers $2,400 to go a full day without any technology. According to their report, nearly 2 in 5 Americans have tried staying away from their phones for a specific amount of time. 40% of Americans also check their weekly screen time reports, but only 20% actually set limits on apps to reduce it.

Due to these startling statistics, decided it was time to do something about it—and they’re willing to bribe you for it.

The Challenge

You’ll have to disconnect from everything for a full day. The tech that’s banned from use is:

  • Cell phone (aside from emergencies)
  • Television
  • Gaming consoles/handheld gaming devices
  • Computers/laptops
  • Smartwatches/wearable tech (except for medically necessary devices)
  • Smart home devices

What You’ll Get

To compensate you for your troubles, is going to give you a $250 gift card to build a techless survival kit, along with the $2,400. If you need some inspiration on what to put in your survival kit, here are their suggestions:

  • Typewriter
  • Board games
  • Stationary
  • Books
