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