Are you ready to Shine Offline?
At Shine Offline we empower people to recognise the impact of distractions caused by smartphones and other technology on their wellbeing and productivity and to acknowledge the importance of allowing the mind to rest, rejuvenate and refocus. All programmes highlight the impact of small behavioural changes on managing distraction, lowering stress and building resilience.
We value the role of digital technology in our lives and are working to assist people in using it more mindfully as opposed to not using it at all. By questioning our relationship with technology, changing our habits and setting a Shining example to those around us, we can start to really reconnect with ourselves and others and live a better, more balanced life.
We know that by taking breaks from the digital distractions in our lives, looking up from our smartphones, inbox and ipads, magical things can happen. It’s time to Shine. Offline.

The session was eye-opening, great fun and really got colleagues thinking about their relationships with tech. The practical tools and tips were particularly useful – lots of us are making a conscious effort now to keep phones off the desk, or out of sight during family time so that we can focus on what’s important to us. We wish Shine Offline all the best in continuing to share their learning with organisations throughout the UK.
Following the Shine Offline session I bought an alarm clock and house phone so that I can leave my phones out of my bedroom overnight. This has resulted in much better sleep and I feel more productive the next day as a result. This small change has made a big impact on my life and I am so grateful for the insight Shine Offline gave me to make this change.
The team really enjoyed having time together to learn and relax without the distraction of their mobile phones. The practical tips were really useful. I now appreciate that I need to take responsibility for the role my mobile phone plays in my life and make sure that it doesn’t distract me as often as it can.
I came out of the Shine Offline day refreshed, focused and convinced there was only benefit to be found in more consciously taking control of my habits. I’ve learnt that in a stressful and distracted world I’m happier when being thoughtful about how I spend the stretched and precious commodity of my attention.
