La Abeja Technological Hygiene-a wise guide to connection in the digital age- physical booklet
Our awareness and internal space is sacred and must remain sovereign. The use of technology needs to feel optional. It should be be something that brings you joy and adds to your experience rather than taking you out of it. The moment that your phone starts to detract from your lived experience is the moment to make a different choice. After all, digital communication should happen at the speed of life and not the other way around.
How in control are you of your smartphone use? Do you ever find yourself on your phone and forget why you even picked it up in the first place? Do you feel the urge to look at it every time you’re bored or have a moment to spare? I hate to say it, but I know I do. So why is it that we’ve become so dependent on our phones? And more importantly, what is it doing to us: emotionally, physically, socially, and neurologically? Technological Hygiene explores just how we got where we are today and how we can begin to find our way back to a healthy relationship with these small but powerful tools. Ultimately this is a roadmap, to show you the way back to using your phone rather than allowing it to use you.
