How to Achieve Digital Wellness (Video) – Episode 27 of Your Weekly Dose of Life-Work Balance
In this week’s video, I shared ways to achieve digital wellness, an intentional and healthy relationship with technology, both in the workplace and in personal life. Watch below!
Technology has been a huge game changer in the last thirty years or so: we can easily connect and do business with anyone globally, and it brings us closer wherever we are. I love it because it allows me to stay in touch with my family (since we don’t live in the same country), and I can expand my visibility and get clients from all over the world. Technology also makes our lives easier since we can accomplish our tasks faster and better. And in the last couple of years, it has been very useful for remote work thanks to a variety of digital tools, communities, and more.
On the other hand, technology can become an issue, especially if we overuse it and we let it run our life. And sometimes we don’t realize when this happens, but our body and brain can feel it, and it’s not good news. In the workplace, excessive technology usage has been associated with burnout, suggesting employers should adopt tools and practices that moderate technology usage to promote healthier life and work.
Social media has its advantages and disadvantages as well: it helps us connect to people with similar interests, it can provide opportunities for self-expression and creativity, it allows us to learn from different perspectives and viewpoints; but too much of it can lead to loneliness, body-image issues, stress, anxiety, burnout, even depression, and health problems.
Considering that the average person spends about three hours daily on social media, it’s no wonder that it has a big impact on different hormones and neurotransmitters.
In the video, I talked about the effects of technostress in our body and our brain, the stages of social media burnout, and tips to handle technology and engage on social media in a better and healthier way.
