We are living in a digital age.
From our cars to our phones to our computers, technology is everywhere. We have access to any information we could ever want whenever we want – it’s at our fingertips. At the touch of a button we could have a map, or an email, or a spreadsheet, or a book, or an article…
But constant access to technology can be overwhelming. And when your work relies on habitual digital consumption, it can easily cause information overload.
Imagine working in a constant state of fight or flight – it would be exhausting! Unfortunately, whether we recognize it or not, many of us do. And that’s why burnout is becoming increasingly problematic, especially for women.
With information overload on the rise, Guru’s Sr. Manager of Internal Communications, Julia Soffa, will join us to dive deeper into this digital pandemic and the harmful impact it’s having on women.
We know that setting healthy work and life boundaries is important, but what about healthy technology and life boundaries? It’s easy to misidentify scrolling through social media after work as a way to “wind down”, but after spending a whole day consuming information, that mindless scrolling is just more information overload for our brains. That’s why Julia wants to teach women about the importance of disconnecting from the digital space and building a healthy relationship with technology – both in the workplace and in everyday life.
In this chat we will discuss:
Being mindful of the relationship you want to build with technology and the negative impacts it can have on you (email apnea, information overload, etc.)
How to create technology boundaries to protect our mental health.
Digital Wellness best practices for both inside and outside the workplace.
