What is Digital Wellness and Why Does it Matter?

What do our tech habits look like at the start of this new decade, and how did we get here? The first iPhone was released less than 13 years ago, and yet in that short time we have become such digitalized citizens that it's nearly impossible to imagine a time when our personal devices were not within constant reach. Is it any surprise that so many of us - children and adults - are feeling overwhelmed? In this episode, we are going to unpack the fundamentals of digital wellness and talk about topics like persuasive design, the attention economy, distractedness and connection.
