In the era of 24-7 connectivity, it is more important than ever to cultivate digital well-being practices in order to buffer digital overload and burnout. Digital wellness aims to help individuals thrive in the face of technology by offering evidence-based solutions that can help improve efficiency, productivity, focus, connection, and overall mental and physical well-being.

During this talk, participants will be introduced to digital wellness and the link between mindfulness and technology.
