Spacious living – the greyscale challenge


This week we have set ourselves a challenge to switch our phone accessibility colour to greyscale. Why? Because sometimes it just feels good to be more selective about what influence is drifting in to our lives (or sometimes bombarding our lives). After reading a few articles on the use of colour as an addictive quality on our devices we thought we would try to cut some of the noise (in this case colour) from our digital lives and see if it adds a little more space to our week.

Want to give it a try?

Change your accessibility to greyscale on your iPhone

In iOS 10, go to Settings > General > Accessibility >Display Accommodations >Colour Filters. Switch Colour Filters on and select Greyscale.

Make a shortcut for the times you need a bit of colour back, and quickly!

Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut > Colour Filters. Now, you just press the home button three times to enable greyscale. Triple-click again to go back to colour.

Let us know if you try and whether it helped you find a little more mental space. Good luck!
