How to...find balance with technology
Join us to learn how to live in balance with today's technology so you can reap the benefits without suffering the costs. Technology gives us freedom, connects us across the globe and provides us access to a world of information, however our if use is not regulated it can be easy to develop an unhealthy reliance on our favourite gadgets. A recent study has suggested on average we use technology for 24 hours in a single week, which can interfere with relationships and sleep causing us to be more irritable and unstable in daily life. In this workshop you will learn how to create healthy boundaries with your technology that work for you, with tips on changing smart phone settings, breaking negative habits of addictive use and more. At the end of the class you'll leave with a personal action plan to reduce unnecessary use and get the most from your technology, just when you need it.
