Switch off life's headaches

We believe that when pain is gone, life takes its place. And that life is at its best when filled with rich, human relationships.

For the past 60 years, Australians have trusted Panadol to help relieve pain. But in today's fast-paced world we have a new type of pain - it's called a ‘life headache'. Being always-on and connected 24/7 via our phones and personal devices has become a life headache, with our research showing they can interrupt our lives and the way we connect with those around us.

The Panadol Home of Reconnection is hidden on the South Coast of Gerroa, NSW and is designed to help us reconsider how much time we spend with our devices, and the way it affects our sense of wellbeing and relationships.
By stripping the house of interruptive technology - the Home of Reconnection gives visitors the opportunity to switch-off one of life's headaches and enjoy reconnecting with those around them.
Meet some of our guests

When finding the perfect guest to launch the Home of Reconnection we started with a man whose career was built on the use of technology. You hear him on the radio, see him on TV and read about him on celebrity gossip sites - all the time. You may know him as Nova's radio host 'Fitzy' - but to his family he's Ryan and Dad. We sent 'Fitzy' and his family to the home where they enjoyed time off to reconnect with each other, tech free.

"Time away from our devices really opened up our eyes to how small changes, like no phones at the dinner table, can lead to less distractions, less stress, and more quality time." - Fitzy
