A Digital Wellness Collaborative Paper
01 | "Phones OFF, Conversations ON" 2019
A LETTER FROM THE
CREATOR
A day just like today 10 years ago, I was writing and
participating in another collaborative paper called "Claves
del Nuevo Marketing" ("The keys of the New Marketing").
We were about 15-20 passionate people about the Internet
2.0 and the social web. At that time of my life, I was a
blogger (there was no Instagram) and a digital marketer
who evolved to a social media lead. I developed business
strategies in the digital world for leading and large brands
across the globe. We didn't know how the social web would
evolve but we were pioneers, dreamers and shared a
common goal.
Today, I'm thrilled to create and share with you this
collaborative paper along with these inspiring people that
from now onwards are family and dream partners. Now, I'm
proud to be on the other side of the digital distraction
equation and being able to leverage all that digital
marketing expertise and knowledge to raise awareness
about the dangers of addictive technology.
I know It seems paradoxical but, I don’t think I would have
been able to launch Bagby and this document without my
previous digital marketing consultant life.
Life is a journey, enjoy the ride and keep it HUMAN.

ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT
This is the first collaborative paper with a focus on
Digital Wellness and the benefits of unplugging from
our digital devices.
The title "Phones OFF, Conversations ON" brings to
life the idea of the need for unplugging and being
present to have a real and deep conversation about
this topic.
The format is very easy to digest and brings a
personal and human perspective from top leaders and
pioneers in the industry. We have carefully selected a
diverse and enriching group of people from tech
engineers, mindful teachers, entrepreneurs, to
therapists, artists, writers and retreat owners, to share
some key tips, what they are doing for the greater
good and what is their vision of the industry in the
next five years. Also, the people featured come from
different parts of the world including, USA, Canada,
UK, Australia, Italy, Netherlands and Switzerland.
Along with their recommendations, this report features
eye-popping pieces of research and stats to raise the
awareness of a topic that is becoming the third
biggest epidemic after sugar and cigarettes in the last
fifty years.
The goal of this collaborative paper is to join forces to
show the world how different people can work
together towards a common objective. This goal goes
beyond generating profit and can have a positive
impact on people who, like us, went through a wake up
call, depression, a negative experience or who are
trying launch an idea to make a change in the ultra-
connected society we live in.

ABOUT THE COMPANY
This collaborative paper is brought to you by Bagby,
Digital Wellness with a HUMAN soul.
We are not here to add unnecessary technology.
We are here to create beautifully crafted and
welcoming reminders that real connections start the
moment we put our smartphones away and we
proudly celebrate that. Our aim is to develop digital-
free and simple solutions that people use in their
homes and workspaces and become a part of their
everyday life. We want people to use Bagby
because they build a meaningful relationship with it.
The end goal is to reduce our dependency to our
digital devices to make the world a more HUMAN
place, just like before Smartphones.
 
Our vision is to celebrate humanity over technology.
We imagine a world where humanity always comes
first and the use technology becomes intentional to
improve lives rather than a tool to get distracted or
waste our valuable time.
Thank you for keeping us Human.

"THE GOAL ISN'T TO SPEND
LESS TIME ON YOUR PHONE;
IT'S TO SPEND MORE TIME ON
YOUR LIFE."
"As an experiment, try taking a 24-hour break from all
your devices. Notice how you feel—before, during and
after. You may be amazed by your initial twitchiness —
followed by a feeling of calm and a sense that time is
slowing down. Note: if you have a friend/partner/kid
who you think has a problem with their devices, ask
them to try this with you. It's a great conversation
starter!"

on line, the hours before bed, the hours

"Our lives are what we pay attention to. We only
remember what we pay attention to; we only
experience what we pay attention to. So we'd better be
sure that when we spend our attention on something,
it's the result of a conscious choice!"
WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN
"When we unplug, it gives us a chance to
identify and reconnect with what's actually
important to us in life."

"As hard as we try, we can't increase the number of
hours in a day. What we can do is be more intentional

from using our phones means we can set the intention
to focus on the activities, places and people we love."
WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN
"The key benefit to unplugging is being
able to show myself or someone I love that
I am focusing my full attention on the

another way to be loving."

"DIGITAL WELLBEING IS THE
CONSCIOUS USE OF TECHNOLOGY
TO ENABLE EACH INDIVIDUAL TO
REALIZE THEIR POTENTIAL TO
BENEFIT THEM AND THEIR

"Start with observation. Take time to observe the
people around you (friends, family, commuters....) and
how they use their phones. Then watch yourself. When
are you picking up your phone? Why? How is it making
you feel?"
"I try to unplug when I am with my
children (ages 3 and 1)".
FAVORITE TIME TO UNPLUGKEY TIP
"It is clear that many of us are no longer the masters
of how we use our devices. This is a problem, despite
the fact that handhelds are clunky, we drop them, they
run out of battery, get hot etc. As technology becomes
more pervasive - when it's fully integrated throughout
our homes, our cars our bodies, it will be even harder
to develop a conscious relationship with it. That's why
finding phone/life balance now is so important."
WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN
"Increased focus, productivity and
creativity. More sleep. Less stress. And the
ability to use technology more positively
when we actively choose to use it."

that humans should be at the heart of technology,
rather than the other way around."

"To digital detox or not? I’m often asked about this.
Going off the grid is all well and good but if you return
with your same bad habits than no changes will be
made. This is your barometer. Try it for a week, a
weekend, a day. Once you bring awareness to the issue
in our screened-in world, people become more mindful
of their tech consumption. This is where the change
happens."

anti-electricity, turning off our phones to spend time with

WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN

spent time in nature. You can get your mind

"The future of the industry will rest in society at
large to manage and regulate digital tech use.
Education on how to use technology and its impact
will be an essential foundation in all schools. In the
near term, there is going to be a rapid increase of
mental and relationship health issues due to tech
use though I am helpful we'll learn how to live in
harmony with technology... in the future."
VISION OF THE DIGITAL WELLNESS INDUSTRY IN THE
NEXT 5 YEARS
"My work focuses on bringing mindfulness into organizations and professional development. We help
leaders develop the underlying awareness required to make the choice to manage their attention
(and tech use) more effectively by seeing the value and the research and by experiencing the impact
of doing so."

MICHAEL APOLLO RP

of people look at their phone even
when dining out with friends or
family (2018, YouGov).
Photographer, initiator #CaughtintheApp
"OUR SMARTPHONE USE IS A
MASSIVE SOCIAL PROBLEM. MASSIVE
SOCIAL PROBLEMS NEED MASSIVE
SOCIAL SOLUTIONS. SO LET'S START
CALLING IT A PROBLEM AND HAVE A
CONVERSATION."
"Go offline for a day, a week a month and experience
what happens to you. Afterwards empty your phone
and reinstall only what you really, really need."
"I like forest bathing or what the
Japanese call Shinrin Yoku. Going to the
forest / nature alone or with friends and
enjoy what is there. In silence, in
conversation or in play."
FAVORITE TIME TO UNPLUGKEY TIP
"You only have 100% of attention. Some parts of your
life and work need it all. So train yourself to get used to
focus and enjoy the flows. They will come naturally."
WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN
"Attention, flow, love."
KEY BENEFITS OF UNPLUGGING
"Alone Together, Book, Sherry Turkle."
FAVORITE ARTICLE
"I expect consumers to start paying for less
addictive, more valuable devices and apps and the
industry to answer with more responsible solutions."
VISION OF THE DIGITAL WELLNESS INDUSTRY IN THE
NEXT 5 YEARS
"Together with fellow artists I am inviting (young) people to do photographical research on our
relationship with smartphones. Focus on whatever you like. From advantages of the wonder
machines to privacy issues, to addiction of elderly people. It makes them conscious of their use and
makes them change their habits.."

99%of people still use their phone as
an alarm clock, affecting negatively
the quality of their sleep  (Bagby,
2017)
JUAN SANCHEZ BONET
Co-Founder of Bagby.co
"THE REAL CAUSE OF
PHONE ADDICTION IS THE
"SMART" PRODUCTS
REVOLUTION."
"Start with the bedroom. Remove your phone from the
bedroom by replacing it with an alarm-clock. It's a
simple but truly effective sleep hygiene move."
"On Sundays. I leave my phone at
home and enjoy a full family day."
FAVORITE TIME TO UNPLUGKEY TIP
"Most of the time we think we are busy but it's more
about being distracted. Can you imagine what you
could do with the 3h average wasted scrolling"
WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN
"First of all, I sleep much better and thanks to that I became more productive at work.
Secondly, since I reclaimed some time, I've become a better parent."
KEY BENEFITS OF UNPLUGGING
"What is "brain hacking"? Tech
insiders on why you should care",
Tristan Harris, 60 minutes.
FAVORITE ARTICLE
"I see people counting minutes off their phones as we
have been doing with calories, steps and other
metrics."
VISION OF THE DIGITAL WELLNESS INDUSTRY IN THE
NEXT 5 YEARS
"At Bagby, we believe the is space for digital wellness with a HUMAN soul. We develop beautifully
crafted and welcoming tech-free reminders to help people realize that we don't need to add more
technology to solve a tech problem. Phone addiction is a consequence of giving away our freedom to
the called "smart" products that pair with our digital devices."

Digital Wellness: Phones OFF, conversations ON 2019 - bagbybrand

  • 1. Phones OFF, Conversations ON. Thank you for keeping us HUMAN May 2019 www.bagby.co // @bagbybrand //info@bagby.co //#phonefreebedroomchallenge A Digital Wellness Collaborative Paper
  • 2. 01 | "Phones OFF, Conversations ON" 2019 A LETTER FROM THE CREATOR A day just like today 10 years ago, I was writing and participating in another collaborative paper called "Claves del Nuevo Marketing" ("The keys of the New Marketing"). We were about 15-20 passionate people about the Internet 2.0 and the social web. At that time of my life, I was a blogger (there was no Instagram) and a digital marketer who evolved to a social media lead. I developed business strategies in the digital world for leading and large brands across the globe. We didn't know how the social web would evolve but we were pioneers, dreamers and shared a common goal. Today, I'm thrilled to create and share with you this collaborative paper along with these inspiring people that from now onwards are family and dream partners. Now, I'm proud to be on the other side of the digital distraction equation and being able to leverage all that digital marketing expertise and knowledge to raise awareness about the dangers of addictive technology. I know It seems paradoxical but, I don’t think I would have been able to launch Bagby and this document without my previous digital marketing consultant life. Life is a journey, enjoy the ride and keep it HUMAN. JUAN SANCHEZ C0-FOUNDER OF BAGBY
  • 3. 02 | "Phones OFF, Conversations ON" 2019 ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT This is the first collaborative paper with a focus on Digital Wellness and the benefits of unplugging from our digital devices. The title "Phones OFF, Conversations ON" brings to life the idea of the need for unplugging and being present to have a real and deep conversation about this topic. The format is very easy to digest and brings a personal and human perspective from top leaders and pioneers in the industry. We have carefully selected a diverse and enriching group of people from tech engineers, mindful teachers, entrepreneurs, to therapists, artists, writers and retreat owners, to share some key tips, what they are doing for the greater good and what is their vision of the industry in the next five years. Also, the people featured come from different parts of the world including, USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Italy, Netherlands and Switzerland. Along with their recommendations, this report features eye-popping pieces of research and stats to raise the awareness of a topic that is becoming the third biggest epidemic after sugar and cigarettes in the last fifty years. The goal of this collaborative paper is to join forces to show the world how different people can work together towards a common objective. This goal goes beyond generating profit and can have a positive impact on people who, like us, went through a wake up call, depression, a negative experience or who are trying launch an idea to make a change in the ultra- connected society we live in.

You may be amazed by your initial twitchiness — followed by a feeling of calm and a sense that time is slowing down. Note: if you have a friend/partner/kid who you think has a problem with their devices, ask them to try this with you. It's a great conversation starter!" "Spending time with my family, waiting on line, the hours before bed, the hours after I wake up in the morning, any time when i'm outside." FAVORITE TIME TO UNPLUGKEY TIP "Our lives are what we pay attention to. We only remember what we pay attention to; we only experience what we pay attention to.

KIM ANENBERG CAVALLO Founder of Lilspace "I AM ONLY ONE, BUT I AM ONE WHO WILL TAKE BREAKS FROM MY PHONE REGULARLY SO OTHERS AROUND ME WILL TOO." "Get friends and family on board. It's easier to change a habit when others are making the same change. Getting physically fit sometimes means finding a friend who will run with you. Find that friend who will unplug and enjoy real life with you." "when I am spending time connecting in nature either on my own or with someone." FAVORITE TIME TO UNPLUGKEY TIP "As hard as we try, we can't increase the number of hours in a day. What we can do is be more intentional with our time.

How is it making you feel?" "I try to unplug when I am with my children (ages 3 and 1)". FAVORITE TIME TO UNPLUGKEY TIP "It is clear that many of us are no longer the masters of how we use our devices. This is a problem, despite the fact that handhelds are clunky, we drop them, they run out of battery, get hot etc. As technology becomes more pervasive - when it's fully integrated throughout our homes, our cars our bodies, it will be even harder to develop a conscious relationship with it. That's why finding phone/life balance now is so important." WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN "Increased focus, productivity and creativity. More sleep. Less stress. And the ability to use technology more positively when we actively choose to use it." KEY BENEFITS OF UNPLUGGING Nicolas Carr, the Shallows.

"To digital detox or not? I’m often asked about this. Going off the grid is all well and good but if you return with your same bad habits than no changes will be made. This is your barometer. Try it for a week, a weekend, a day. Once you bring awareness to the issue in our screened-in world, people become more mindful of their tech consumption. This is where the change happens." "Reading on a sunny park bench with my son, watching the world whiz by." FAVORITE TIME TO UNPLUGKEY TIP "Just like turning off the lights at night doesn’t make you anti-electricity, turning off our phones to spend time with ourselves and our loved ones doesn’t make you anti- technology.

Unplugging reminds us that there are other ways to live and work, and forces us to be mindful about our choices." WHY WE SHOULD UNPLUG MORE OFTEN "Unplugging is a choice.
