And more than one in three young people, aged 18-24, believe that addiction to technology and social networks have a negative impact on their wellbeing.
Whilst there are countless benefits to the much-needed connection and interactivity our screens can bring us, psychologists still deem society’s smartphone overuse and dependancy as a ‘full blown epidemic’. Believed to be a contributing factor towards increasing levels of anxiety, depression and loneliness, our attachment to our screens is also disrupting our productivity, sleep and relationships. By tackling the following topics, this 60 minute webinar will help you take control of technology, ensuring it enhances, rather than hinders your ‘real life’ off screen:
Discover the neuroscience and physiological effects of the impact of screen time, particularly how it activates the body’s stress response and impairs working memory.
Consider ways in which use of certain apps and social media can compromise our mental health.
Take home tools and tips to help cultivate more conscious and mindful smartphone use, particularly during lockdown and restrictions.
If you panic when you’re without your mobile and get FOMO (fear of missing out) from too much social media scrolling, this session is for you.
Available as a live workshop on-site at your office or virtually online.
A digital wellbeing coach and expert in positive psychology.
On-site UK wide or virtually worldwide.
By the end of the workshop I had lots of tips, tools & apps to to make sure I control my phone and not the other way around! I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone with a smartphone.
An extremely interesting and engaging workshop. The subject matter was well presented with the perfect amount of interaction with the audience. The workshop definitely made everyone more aware of their own phone use and how to take small steps to reduce dependency on it.
It was very good, really enjoyed it and found it very engaging. 10/10!!
