Ready to tame your tech so you can get more done in your day?
YOUR DIGITAL STYLE IS
You’re super tech savvy but you experience the adverse consequences of living a screen-saturated life.
More often than not, you feel tired and distracted and never allow yourself time to daydream or just ‘be’. You’re always checking your inbox and can rarely get through a task without your phone or laptop interrupting you. Siri is your constant companion and the incessant pings and dings from your devices hum like background music to your day. You know your physical and emotional wellbeing would improve with less time spent online but you’re just not sure how to tame your troublesome tech habits.
I hope you’ve found this digital self-evaluation helpful.
It can be a little confronting to realise we are more digitally dependent and distracted than we thought. But trust me when I say, it’s not your fault - and you are definitely not alone.
Companies spend billions of dollars each and every year on research alone, discovering how to make their systems, apps and online platforms even more engaging and enticing to us as consumers.
The technology we use has been intentionally designed to meet (and actually prey) on our basic physiological needs. It causes neurological changes in our brains and physiological responses in our bodies. We know, for example, that some of us now suffer from ‘email apnoea’ where we literally hold our breaths when we dive into our inboxes. Our heart rates increase and we dump cortisol (the stress hormone).
But it’s not all doom and gloom! There are simple solutions that can help you tame your most troubling tech habits and get you back in control of your tech use.
Here are two ways I can help you do that
