Tips to Develop a Healthier Relationship with Technology
- Avoid starting and ending your day on your cell phone and opt for doing something more meaningful like setting an intention for the day or reflecting on 3 things you appreciate.
- Create a ritual that represents the end of your remote work day. For example, close your computer and walk around your neighborhood for 15 minutes while doing mindful exercise meditation.
- Set limits around how often you engage with social media or online news. Do this informally or through the use of an app like social fever or offtime.
In the midst of being engaged with technology more than ever, we can actually use technology to support our well-being–ranging from the apps we use to the ways we use our devices.
