Digital Wellness with a Human Soul
We believe there is a more HUMAN way to overcome the current overwhelming technology and digital dependency.
We want to solve the problem by creating beautifully crafted and digital-free solutions (no more apps) that help us disconnect from our devices.
Our solutions are reminders that real connections start the moment we put our smartphones away and we proudly celebrate that.
Digital wellness is not an app but an entire LIFESTYLE CHANGE. It’s about building positive routines that enhance our human condition, not downgrade them. At Bagby, our MISSION is to decrease people's screen time while increasing their HUMAN time.
THANK YOU FOR KEEPING US HUMAN.

The Sleep Epidemic
99% of people still use their phone as an alarm clock, affecting negatively the quality of their sleep
A third of US adults report that they usually get less than the recommended amount of sleep. Not getting enough sleep is linked with many chronic diseases and conditions—such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and depression—that threaten our nation’s health. Getting enough sleep is not a luxury—it is something people need for good health. Sleep disorders can also increase a person’s risk of health problems. It's time for some sleep hygiene.
Did you know people are 26% more productive at work without their smartphones? (Kaspersky Lab, 2016)
Focus at work is the exception, not the rule; especially during these challenging times. And with the always-on technologies of today, they take a heavy toll on productivity. Distractions Are Costing Companies Millions.

The Human Relationships Crisis
We spend more time staring at our phones than making eye contact (Bank Of America, 2016)
The decline of eye contact is a fact, and as we spend more and more of our time staring at screens, there's less time left over to look into people's eyes - including the eyes of the people we care about most.
The growth of multitasking on mobile devices and remote working have normalized the experience of having conversations with little or no eye contact which plays a critical role in the development of emotional connections and building meaningful relationships. Indeed, 2/3 of Americans say that they “somewhat or strongly agree that periodically ‘unplugging’ or taking a ‘digital detox’ is important for their mental health ( The APA’s Stress in America, 2018).
The Big Disconnect Between Parents and Children
A majority of parents (68%) report that their phone can get in the way of spending quality time with their children. (Pew Research, Parenting Children in the Age of Screens, 2020).
"Full attention," says Goleman, "is a form of love."
Being connected to everyone all the time makes us less attentive to the people we care about most. Nowhere is the alienating power of smartphones more troubling than in the relationship between parents and children. Put simply, smartphones are making mothers and fathers pay less attention to their kids and it could be causing emotional harm. Lactation consultants in Canada and the United States have begun noticing the prevalence of women texting and scrolling through their phones while they breastfeed, breaking valuable eye contact with their baby. It's time to move from "Smartphones" to "Smart Parenting".
