why phone/life balance?
If we have purpose in our use of technology, we can connect, create and learn. But for a lot of us, using a device is not a conscious choice, it’s a habit. It causes us to lose out on meaningful engagement with the ‘real world’ and the people in it. We also miss the creativity that come in idle moments, when our mind is free to wander.
The answer isn’t to avoid using technology altogether. That’s not realistic and isn’t even necessary. Instead we can focus on being in control of when we use our devices. Of course, breaking out of any negative habits is challenging - in fact it takes time. So people need a helping hand to achieve a change in their digital behaviour.
That’s why SPACE exists. We help people discover their digital balance.

what type of phone user are you?
We believe that habits form partly as a response to an emotional need. Our phone habits are no different. You might reach for your phone sometimes to feel excited, to feel loved, to feel needed, supported or included. Once we identify what emotions are driving us to pick up our phone it becomes easier to be aware of those feelings, to stay in check with our behaviour and to shift our habits.
That's why we created the four categories of phone user, so that you can start to identify your main forces of habit and evolve them accordingly.
