Digital Mindfulness is a term created from concepts that are steeped in thousands of years of history.
In our societies, we spend an increasing amount of time in digitised environments. The current mantra of digital disruption encourages the whole world to go online, to connect to the information superhighway. However, we rarely think about the way we connect using digital technologies, and that the quality of those connections have significant human and business costs.
The discipline of mindfulness meditation, which has been used to improve concentration, decision-making, reduce stress, and more, is defined as “maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.”
Digital Mindfulness blends the principles of mindfulness with the shifting transformation of our digitised world to influence the quality of our digitised lives.
