I almost skipped over this info until I saw the Farmville logo. I was horrified! I would never have gone so far as to hurt a crying child, but I was hooked on Farmville for months. It was such fun. Then I went on a vacation for a week. When I came back I was no longer interested. My farm is still there in total disarray, but I still can't get interested again. Somehow my Guardian Angel is looking out for me.

According to recent research by Ofcom, 37% of adults and 60% of teens admit to being ‘highly addicted’ to their smartphones, with users checking their smartphones on average, 34 times a day. Additionally, 51% of adults and 65% of teens use their smartphones while socializing with others, and 22% and 47% respectively, confess to answering their smartphones even while on the toilet.

So the International 'Moodoff Day’ is encouraging people around the world to avoid using smartphones for a few hours on February 26. The organization is urging adults and teenagers to spend from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. that day without using their smartphone. This events will celebrate each year on last Sunday of February.

Moodoff Day is aiming to raise awareness of smart phone addiction and to minimise the impact on relationships, work/life balance, reduce risk of injury in traffic and improve quality of life.
