For individuals who want to be more intentional with your own digital habits. For parents and carers who want to understand how to navigate problematic technology use in your home.
It's not uncommon to feel like digital devices and online platforms have a strong hold on our lives, sometimes to the point of addiction. This can affect not only your productivity but also your overall mental wellbeing.
The constant stream of information bombarding you can be overwhelming, and it's absolutely understandable that it might be stressing you out.
The feelings of lonliness and isolation, of comparison or discontent, those late-night scrolling sessions disrupting your sleep patterns, or the eye strain or poor posture, these can all be the result of our over dependence on our devices.
"Those with higher levels of problematic news consumption were significantly more likely to experience poor mental and physical health, even when controlling for demographics, personality traits, and overall news use".
- Professor Bryan McLaughlin, Caught in a Dangerous World: Problematic News Consumption and Its Relationship to Mental and Physical Ill-Being 2022
If you've ever had an argument in your household about digital devices, you are definitely not alone! Excessive screen time can contribute to strained relationships, hinder effective communication, and disrupt quality bonding time.
Whether you're a parent struggling to balance your own device usage with being present at home, or that the constant connectivity is creating difficulties in setting boundaries between work and personal life, you're in the right place.
Perhaps you're concerned with how much screen time to give your toddler so as not to hinder their social and cognitive development. Or that your teenager may be experiencing digital addiction, spending excessive time on social media or online gaming and suffering the effects of that. Or maybe as a family you just want to set constructive boundaries together that align with your family values. If this is you, you're in the right place.
"One in five young people say they wake up during the night to check messages on social media, leading them to be three times more likely to feel constantly tired at school than their classmates who don’t use social media during the night".

Ways we can work together
"Experts believe that internet addiction is causing damage to the lives of individuals all over the UK and that it is having an adverse effect on their working and social lives. Just under 50% of those questioned said that their online use had affected their sleep, meaning they felt tired. Almost a third said that because they spent too much time on the internet, they had missed out on spending time with friends or family members. Around 25% of teenagers were late to school because of being online".
