Do you know your family’s Digital Wellbeing?

Technology has become an integral part of our daily lives, and it can be a great tool for families to stay connected and entertained. However, excessive use of technology can have negative effects on our mental and physical health, and it can also strain family relationships, it can sometimes distract us from the things that matter most to us. We believe technology should improve life, not distract from it.

WHAT IS DIGITAL WELLNESS?

There are many definitions but in general, digital wellness is defined as the optimum state of health, personal fulfillment, and social satisfaction that each individual using technology is capable of achieving.

The first step toward digital wellbeing is often understanding more about how you interact with technology in the first place.

The use of technoly today in our families should support our thriving in different areas of life and to achieve this we need to work together, talk about it and plan for it.

Family digital wellbeing refers to the responsible and healthy use of technology within a family. It involves creating a safe and balanced environment that supports healthy digital habits, fosters open communication, and promotes positive family relationships.
