Why is Digital Wellbeing even a thing and how can we learn to be less distracted, as well as more calm, focused and creative?
Take control of your attention and unleash your potential in the Age of Distraction. Learn how to cultivate a relationship to technology that supports your needs, values and aspirations, instead of distracting you from them.
Why is Digital Wellbeing even a thing, and what will we do about it?
Technology is designed to monopolize our attention. You’ll learn about the forces driving the attention economy & human downgrading. Can you sense the distraction within, and all around you?
We have the power to cultivate a healthier relationship to tech. Digital Wellbeing is the practice of using technology in service of your best life, rather than as a source of mindless distraction from it.
Are you using technology, or is technology using you? You’ll gain insights on your current habits, clarify your values, and envision a relationship you feel great about. We’ll create a strategy to put you back in control.
Intentionally is key. Mastering anything means mastering your attention. Mastering your attention requires mastering your relationship to technology. If we don’t control our attention, we can’t control our lives.
Humane design psychology can be used to create empowering digital environments. We’ll redesign the setup of your devices to make being mindful & focused easier than ever before.
More time & space for what’s most important. We’ll design rituals and habits that make it easy to maintain & continuously improve your relationship to tech — giving you back the attention you need to create the life you want.
