An introduction to digital wellbeing
Mind Over Tech

Over the past few years, and particularly since the start of the pandemic, we've been spending more time online. But this can actually leave us feeling more disconnected, burnt-out and anxious. Digital wellbeing is about taking back control of our relationship with technology, enabling individuals and communities to feel good about when they connect, and using technology to realise their potential.
