170. Tips and Strategies for Maintaining Digital Wellness
Technology has become an integral part of our lives in today’s digital age. From smartphones to tablets, we are constantly connected and immersed in a world of technology. While technology has undoubtedly brought numerous benefits and conveniences, it is important to balance our tech usage and creative pursuits.
This episode discusses the need for individuals to establish boundaries with technology to maintain healthy relationships. Naché and LaKaye share their experiences and insights on navigating the world of technology while also nurturing their creativity.
The hosts discuss various strategies for achieving this balance. One such approach is to set specific boundaries with technology. This can include designating specific times or places where technology is off-limits, such as during meals or before bedtime. By creating these boundaries, individuals can carve out time for other activities, such as creative pursuits or spending quality time with loved ones.
Throughout the episode, Naché and LaKaye discuss their experiences with technology and creativity. Naché, described as both a tech enthusiast and a tactile person, shares how she finds a balance between these seemingly contrasting aspects of her personality. She enjoys updating her technology and exploring the latest apps but also values unplugging and engaging in traditional activities like journaling and crafting. This serves as a reminder that technology and creativity are not mutually exclusive, and finding a balance between them is possible.
In conclusion, balancing technology and creativity is essential in today’s digital age. Ultimately, the goal is to achieve digital wellness and maintain a balanced lifestyle in the digital age.
