WHY IS DIGITAL WELL-BEING SUCH A HUGE TOPIC RIGHT NOW


Hola, je m'appelle Michelle and I'm a technology addict. 😅 With all that's happening, it's easy to fuel that fire. ⠀


We are surrounded by technology, smart this, smart that, smart everything; so it's important to consider what impact that is having on our wellbeing. How are things like digital comms (like FaceTime, Zoom), social media and wearable technologies effecting our health and wellbeing? This area of research, 'digital wellbeing', is relatively new and complex topic. What we do know is too much of anything isn't good for you, well maybe except for veggies? 🙃 In short, we know and recognise that digital well-being is an important balance. If you're looking to reduce your screen time, here's a few ideas. 💡


1️⃣ Charge your phone overnight in another room 🔋- saves checking emails or social media first thing in the morning 😉. For those who haven't made the switch, your body will thank you for it. 💪🏽I've had an ⏰ alarm clock for a few years now and love it. It took about a week to get used to and I can definitely feel the difference.⠀


2️⃣ Introduce tech free time 🎨- whether it's tech free Tuesdays/Thursdays or tech free 👪family meal times or tech free 💕date night, start small and build up. Tech free Tuesdays/Thursdays doesn't mean the whole day, although it can if it takes your fancy 😄It can be just an hour of screen free time after dinner - no TV, laptop, iPad, phone, etc. I aim to spend about an hour either reading a book or flicking through a magazine or a quick with a yummy candle. Olaf joins in too. Tech free date night, on the other hand, has been a bit harder because we're forever wanting to google stuff 🙈

.

3️⃣ Commit to no screens past a certain time 📵even if you have a smancy pair of blue light glasses 😉. ⠀

.

4️⃣ Turn off notifications ⚠️- You might find it helpful to turn off some of your notifications such as email, news or social media notifications. ⠀

.

5️⃣ Keep your phone out of reach whilst working (from home) 👨🏾‍💻⠀


We'd love to hear how you manage your digital wellbeing.⠀
