Watch Hit Reset: Preventing Screen Fatigue While Staying Connected
Are you feeling burned out from Zoom meetings or overwhelmed by the number of IG Live fitness classes? Are your digital habits making you feel even more disconnected? Research says that people generally spend an average of three hours and 15 minutes on their phones every day, with the top 20% of smartphone users spending upwards of four and a half hours, according to RescueTime. And that was before the pandemic. Now, between lockdowns and quarantine, time spent on screens is on the rise — and so is our craving for human connection.
 
Many of us gravitate toward mindless activities like scrolling through social media or binging on Netflix. If we do, we quickly realize that those pastimes don't fill the void we are desperately craving. What we really need are mindful activities to keep us connected — both to ourselves and to the world around us. In this workshop, digital wellness coach Liana Pavane will helped participants discover how to leverage technology to their advantage to fight screen fatigue while staying connected. From digital wellness tricks to healthy daily habits to productivity tips, the webinar discussed how to reset your lifestyle in an always-on world.
