Live Without A Smartphone For One Year And Win $100,000

Live Without A Smartphone For One Year And Win $100,000

Vitaminwater made news headlines last December when it announced its unique challenge. Thousands of people applied to be chosen as the perfect candidate to spend a year without touching their smartphone, but in the end, the only person who got to try and survive for an entire year without a handheld was Elana Mugdan, a 29-year-old fiction writer from Queens, New York. Eight months into the challenge, she claims it’s been a freeing and eye-opening experience that showed her just how dependent she had become to her smartphone. Even though there are times when she misses her handheld, she plans to go on living without it even after the challenge ends.

“I’ve decided that I will never go back to smartphone use once the one-year contest is up,” Mugdan told CNN. “I don’t think I can be trusted with the technology — if I have access to a smartphone, I suspect I’ll go right back to abusing it, wasting time, staying up all hours of the night on it, and getting addicted to social media, and I really don’t want to go back to all that.”

When she started the “Scroll Free For a Year” challenge, Elana Mugdan had to trade her iPhone 5s for a Kyocera flip phone that she could only use to call and text. She still has access to her laptop, desktop PC and high-tech devices like Amazon Echo, but not having access to her smartphone really made certain situations a lot harder than she could have imagined them before.

If she manages to go another four months without using a smartphone, the 29-year-old New-Yorker stands to pocket $100,000, but according to the rules, she will also have to undergo a lite-detector test to prove that she didn’t cheat during the one-year challenge.
