Description

As technology allows easier connection with our work, family, friends, and the world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed in an era of 24/7/365 connection.

All of this constant connection can leave us feeling exhausted. The pace of media consumption and time spent in front of a screen is unsustainable.

Often, advice on how to use digital technology to avoid the sensation of “drinking from the firehose” is offered as list of do’s and don’ts. However, these types of one-size-fits-all advice is rarely helpful. While advice such as “just check your email twice a day” may sound good, it may not be practical given your work demands.

This 1-hour workshop is designed to offer frameworks for understanding your current digital technology use and help you come up with a plan that will work for you.

We’ll combine two different modalities:

  • Design Thinking: a set of tools used to understand a challenge, coming up with prototypes or potential solutions, and repeatedly testing the solutions [A\B Testing].

  • Mindfulness: using present sense awareness while exploring the challenge through the lens of curiosity rather than judgement and limiting set beliefs.

At the end of this 1-hour workshop, you’ll:

  • Understand the basics of design thinking and how you can apply it to better recognize your current patterns of digital technology use

  • Come up with prototypes, or solutions that you can test in your own life

  • Gain a foundational understanding of mindfulness and cultivate a daily meditation practice so you can pause, reflect and align what you do with your values

This event is limited to 35 people. There will be ample time for Q&A. Additionally, you can email any follow-up questions to Jeena and Alix after the event.
