Online Resources For Joyful Tech During Social Distancing + Unplug, Wellness & Digital Mindfulness Events

Transform your Tech Use To Be More Mindful and Life-Giving

As we're all navigating this health alert together, it's more important than ever that we maintain a healthy relationship with our phones and all our devices. If you're waking up and instantly turning to technology for the latest news and feeling anxious and afraid, that's a signal that it may be time to turn them off-- or turn to something inspirational, or FaceTime a loved one! This is a great opportunity to detox from unhealthy, mindless use of technology, and make sure we're using it in ways that are life-giving instead.


One of my very first Tech Wellness Ways was "Your phone was designed to make life better and easier, when it stops feeling that way, put it down." During this time of social distancing, it may feel like technology is unavoidable - but how about we use it to bring us closer to and encourage the people we love. 

Need some ideas? Today I'm having tea with Lori Woodley, the magical founder of the teen leadership program, All It Takes. We'll be face-timing and catching up. My daughter has weekly dinner parties in NYC and they haven't stopped just because they can't meet in her apartment - instead everyone grabs dinner and goes on Zoom. It's beautiful. As a family, we've been connecting and having fun by playing games online. You could even try streaming a live workout or bringing some friends together for a weekly online book club!

 

Also, a fellow member of the Digital Wellness Collective, Teordora Pavkovic  sent out a delightful list of things to do online, like taking a tour or a museum or national park, streaming a broadway show, or listening to free audio books from the NYC Public Library.
Thanks to Teordora, Common Sense Media, Beat COVID-19 NYC and some of our own research, I've compiled a list below, but please feel free to add any other fun online ideas to the comments section.

Enjoy the List and Remember these Healthy Tech Use Tips:

  • Maintain a Healthy Distance From Your Device.  For Both the Blue Light Exposure and For the Electromagnetic Fields.  Both Dissipate The Further You Get Away From Your Phone Or Laptop.

Try a putting using a phone stand- great for distance and Tech-Neck

  • Turn of WiFi Anytime You're Not Using It To Decrease EMF In Your Home

We love the WiFi Kill Switch to Shut Off the WiFi safely
