Forget 'Digital Detoxing' & Technology 'Addictions': Design an online world which nourishes you.
When you have the basics of a healthy, balanced relationship with technology, you don't need to force yourself offline it in order to find peace. Digital Nutrition explores a range of social, emotional and cognitive impacts of our technology use (and overuse!) and provides solutions to help maximise the benefits of devices and avoid the pitfalls. Digital Nutrition considers a wide range of modern issues from an informed psychological perspective.
POSITIVE & PROACTIVE
Digital Nutrition is future focused and positive about the opportunities technology offers modern communities. Digital Nutrition is about preventing problematic internet use/overuse and seeks to proactively provide alternatives.
MINDFUL & BALANCED
PRACTICAL + REALISTIC
Digital Nutrition makes practical sense for modern living. It's for parents, students, educators - or any human using technology seeking to understand how our digital habits are shaping our brains and behaviours.
