Recent years’ have seen consumers gravitating towards products and experiences that enhance their health and wellbeing. This trend increasingly applies to digital experiences as the demand for products that support better sleep, mental health, fitness, and stress management has come to prominence. 

In our private lives, and the workplace, consumers increasingly demand digital products that promote healthy habits, are secure and support human flourishing.

As a global population, spending more time at home has increased the amount of time spent with digital devices and the requirement for digital wellbeing has never been more relevant.

A growing global community of creators and thought leaders is shaping the digital wellbeing landscape. At the same time, companies around the world understand the impact that technology has on human wellbeing, and understand that positive digital experiences are vital to attracting and retaining customers, and maintain overall wellbeing.

Innovations in areas such as sleep tech, the remote workplace and mental health solutions have shown that new technologies and distribution models are enabling the rise of this digital wellbeing economy and capturing consumer attention. 

In our second, annual Digital Wellbeing Festival, we bring together thought leaders and brands from around the world to share the innovations and latest thinking in the digital wellbeing landscape.

LookUp LIVE & Digital Wellness Festival 2

Susan Reynolds

Co-Founder & Board Chair, LookUp.Live

In 1997, when Susan Reynolds, M.Ed, a life-long educator and Co-Founder of LookUp.live, witnessed the promise and peril of the Internet, she became deeply concerned about technology’s role in students’ lives. After 22 impassioned years working in digital wellbeing, mindfulness, and youth mental health, she came to an aha moment. Nearly 100% of all solutions to mitigate digital overload and 24/7 connectivity were designed by adults. No one was asking Gen Z for their solutions. In response, Susan launched LookUp.live, a nonprofit incubator that exists to improve mental health and wellbeing by empowering youth to design solutions and create a global social movement to reverse the negative effects of digital overload, find balance, and embrace “the humanness of things.” Together, with its academic partners, LookUp discovers, invests in, and accelerates youth-led solutions into its virtual incubator where students receive support from LookUp’s esteemed network of mentors, advocates, and professional advisers. Susan is also the Co-Founder and Director of Youth Advocacy for the Digital Wellness Collective. She graduated with a BA from Dartmouth College and M.Ed from Tufts University.
