The 'iCare for Myself' research study on smartphone use and mindfulness

The 'iCare for Myself' research study is an experimental 10-day intervention with participants assigned in an intervention and a control group involving monitoring of smartphone use, use of mindfulness and focusing exercises and mood tracking. Participants will need to conduct two online assessments of a 20-25 minute duration - at the beginning and at the end of the intervention - and monitor on a daily basis their smartphone use. This is a study where you may find out some interesting things about your social media and smartphone use and potentially develop some monitoring and self-care skills. 


We are looking for:

Participants, who are:

  • 18-50 years old
  • smartphone owners
  • active social media users 


  • Online/home-based


There are no expenses, but all participants will be entered into a prize draw to win around £50 of Amazon vouchers.
