"We are living in a culture dominated by digital excess. Technology and media are dominating our lives as never before"
Orianna Fielding founder the Digital Detox Company
We are drowning under an electronic avalanche of incoming emails, texts and instant messaging. We are struggling with the effects of this continuous deluge of digital data and are becoming aware of the impact that being “on” 24/7 is having on every aspect of our lives.
Many of us, even though we are already suffering from digital overload, seem to be permanently searching for more information, fueled by an anxiety that we may be missing out on something.
However, that same technology that enables us to be connected digitally may actually be responsible for disconnecting us from our real lives. While we can feel empowered by our connection to a digital global community, very often that same digital connection removes us from experiencing real connections with people in our immediate environment.
Studies have shown that digital over-connectivity can also be responsible for causing symptoms of depression and anxiety, due to the lack of real human connection. While our digital life celebrates connectivity, without real meaning and connection our actual lives have no anchor, no core to sustain us.
At the Digital Detox Company we specialise in creating Digital Wellness Programmes
that are customised to meet your company's particular needs.
Using our especially developed 'UNPLUGGED' Digital Wellness programmes, we provide, through our team of renowned experts, a unique combination of Psychology, Neuroscience, Mindfulness and Yoga and Creativity to address the physical, mental and emotional stresses caused by digital overload.
The techniques and practices learned during the Digital Wellness Programmes which we bring to you, and provide in-house, offer a practical and workable 'take-away toolkit' that can be applied to the daily lives of your company's workforce to enable them to manage their digital landscape in new and effective ways to encourage a life of balance, wellness and productivity.
