Over the years, technology has become our BFF and made life and work easier. During the global pandemic, most of us have increased our reliance on and use of technology as we live, study, work, and shop from home.
Many of us (me included) have been glued to our digital devices (smartphones, tablets, laptop and desktop computers, and wearable tech including smart watches, wristbands, pins, rings) for the majority of our day. We’re not aware of how much we are missing out on being present for moments that matter. We’re so plugged in we are suffering from stress, anxiety, and a lack of sleep. Our ability to focus and concentrate for long periods of time has decreased and impacted our productivity. What’s more, we may not even realize our need for digital wellness.
I launched the Digital Wellness Month through my Thriving Mindfully Academy during the first months of the pandemic in 2020. The purpose of Digital Wellness Month is to encourage and help you practice tech life balance with small steps.
This month Thriving Mindfully Academy members are focused on the theme of “Strengthen Yourself.” They are participating in a self-led Digital Wellness Month challenge to help strengthen their capacity to use technology in a mindful, intentional, and healthy ways.
