WHY INVEST IN THIS?
Digital technologies play an increasingly important role in our lives.
They provide us with many opportunities, which would have been unthinkable in the past, when we did not have these technologies at our disposal.
However, there are also risks associated with the use or over-use of digital technologies.
For example, things that can have a negative impact on our mental health, such as addiction to the Internet, inability to switch off and relax, cyberbullying, harassment and more.
Avoiding digital technologies altogether though is not realistic.
So, how can we maximize the benefits of these technologies while minimizing the risks to safeguard our well-being?
Awareness of these risks and of the strategies we can use to create a better relationship with digital technologies is key.
Are we addicted to these technologies and, if so, do we need to go on a ‘digital diet’?
Are there any other things we need to do to improve our digital wellness?
These are key questions that a digital wellness training workshop can help people reflect on.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
There are many people who could benefit from attending a digital wellbeing training session, including:
Members of staff in organizations and companies.
Having a bad relationship with digital technologies can have a negative impact on people’s mental health, on their relationships, on their use of time and, as a result, on their productivity. Thus, it could be very beneficial to train corporate staff on how to improve their digital wellbeing.
Individuals from any walk of life and of any age.
People who are addicted to digital technologies and find it hard to switch off. As a result, they would benefit from becoming aware of the issue and going on a digital detox or digital diet.
Line managers in organizations, in order to support members of staff who are having problems due to a bad relationship with digital technologies.
High-level managers to understand how digital wellbeing can have an impact on an organization as a whole.
