Every day we spend so much time on our mobile devices doing one thing or the other. For some people, mobile devices are for fun, playing games, watching movies and also to stay connected on what’s happening around the world while for others, mobile devices are strictly for business transactions and communications.
Digital wellbeing is a tool that is concerned with controlling the amount of time we spend in front of our mobile device, the web and using technology in general. That means acknowledging the potential harm that overreliance on screen can cause; whether it is shortening our attention spins, or harming our productivity.
To help limit the potential damage, digital wellbeing strategies aim to help us take back control of our smartphone use and to set useful boundaries that provide space and downtime. Technology itself is certainly not ‘’bad’’. It is important we acknowledge the potential harm and risk improper management can also cause to us.
