Designed for habit change
Habit change is hard. Digital habit change is particularly hard. Our relationship with technology is complex as digital interactions are embedded in our daily lives. It is unrealistic to stop using our devices entirely.
The digital habit deck has been developed from evidence-based scientific research and is based on James Clear's four laws of habit change:
Law 1: Make it Obvious
Flip off the lid of your deck to create a portable lab that you can set up wherever you are to act as a visual inspiration and reminder. The magnet in the lid means you can move it around easily as you go about your day.
Law 2: Make it Attractive
Each experiment is beautifully illustrated by artist Dick Hogg, bringing Bird and Rat to life as they guide you on your journey. Each card is laid out with simple bitesize instructions, and you can use the special starter kit cards to get you started.
Law 3: Make it Easy
The experiments are colour coded based on different areas of your digital life, so finding the right experiment for the right situation is easy. Learn and follow the Mind over Tech M.O.R.E. methodology to make long term habit change easier.
Law 4: Make it Satisfying
Use the included tracker card and sticker sheet to create satisfying moments of completion at the end of each experiment. Complete the tracker over time as you learn what digital habits work best for you.

Video tutorials that go deeper
Each deck gives you access to 10+ hours of coaching videos from Mind over Tech founder Jonathan Garner—taking you deeper with templates and practical examples.
"These cards are packed full of great ideas. I anticipated most of the cards would require completely disconnecting in some way, but instead many of them point towards imaginative ways to simply be more efficient and intentional with our favourite devices. It's clear how building these useful habits lead to a healthier digital lifestyle."Sam Wander Product Designer Meta
"I didn’t expect the deck to have such an impact but honestly, these cards are brimming with helpful advice. Literally life-changing."Scott Riley Author Mindful Design

Don't take our word for it
The Digital Habit Lab is practical, accessible, and has made a real difference to how I view my day-to-day tech habits. We know what we need to do to become more mindful when using tech, but applying it to real life situations is easier said than done. By having practical prompts to hand, applying small changes that have a big impact has never been easier.
I love the digital habit lab cards. They are beautiful and inspiring. I can see so many individuals, teams or families using these cards to take positive steps towards a better relationship with technology. A beautiful gift for colleagues or family - a reminder that technology is a tool and we can choose how to use it to make our lives better.
They are an excellent tool with which to challenge yourself, stimulate thinking and to share with others. I’m moving roles next month and will be using the cards to make sure I am in control of my tech and looking after myself as I enter a new work chapter.
The cards have become a shortcut for conversations I regularly have with those in my network, my friends and my family (especially during the pandemic) - instead of talking in abstract, we are able to identify exactly which dimension of our digital health is struggling through the cards, and how we can disrupt those unhelpful and unnecessary habits.
The Digital Habit Lab offers the perfect balance of science and practical techniques to educate and empower our colleagues on how to mindfully use technology.
The Digital Habit Lab Deck is full of great insights and actions to help people better understand their relationship to technology, and to find a more healthy balance. I really liked how each card explores an issue, helps with reflection, and offers ways to change habits that get in the way of achieving personal goals. I will use this deck when I coach lawyers, as well as in my training sessions.
50 easy to do, cleverly thought out tips and tactics to improve your relationship with technology. I'm pulling a card out at random each day and implementing it. The ones that really resonate for me will become long term habits.
Deceptively simple, but very powerful . I'd seen some of these solutions before, but never successfully applied them properly. The experiment cards are exactly what's needed to get started and build on. I will keep coming back to reflect, adapt and inspire others.
I love the deck. It's full of simple and helpful ideas and has already made a positive difference to my digital habits!
The cards are deceptively simple, but packed full of ideas that I've found to be really transformative... striking the right balance with tech usage feels like the challenge everyone is grappling with at the moment and the cards are perfect: combining practical tips and advice with an encouragement for the user to experiment and learn what works best for themselves. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
