A lot has been said and published online about remote work in the last two weeks. The social web is rich in posts with lists of tips and how to embrace and hack our work from home. I would like to spend some time exploring specific aspects of remote work relevant to students, freelancers and employed staff working from home at the moment. I would like to share my personal learnings and experiences in all of those areas.
Can the need for the detox in itself be an indication that your digital habits need to improve?
If you are taking time off digital experiences, it may be beneficial to actually commit to reflection and change.
So I have a suggestion: why not digital detox in micro-moments of gentle, soft awareness instead?
October is the time of the year when we celebrate and raise awareness around mental health. This year the theme of the Mental Health Day (10.10.) is mental health inequality.
In order for the digital detox to work, we need to plan and make space for restoration.
Welcome to our October newsletter. This month we are talking about healing and the challenges that come with it. This month I reflect on the trauma of social injustice, individual and collective recovery. What is healing for you?
It’s interesting how we like to apply the language of nutrition to our digital habits. While that might be a helpful metaphor, it is wrong and is in simplifying our experiences. Just like the studies of the impact of screens on our health were based on television, not Internet, the common perception is that all we ever do online is consume content.
or a very long time, I have struggled with the idea of digital detox, so this autumn, I am exploring it.
What is a digital detox, and why so many times it simply doesn’t work?
Digital detox is a concept of switching off technology and screens to rest and regain a healthy balance of good digital wellbeing. The term is mainly related to planned more extended periods of time; however, for people actively working today, running businesses or staying in touch with their support networks during physical isolation, a long time offline might mean a lot of stress and anxiety.
