Is it just me, or are things feeling a bit negative right now? Like many others, I spent lockdown glued to my phone and devices – at times, my only connection to the outside world. Technology took over and I found myself struggling to know when to put my phone down, laptop away, and take some time for myself.

Although social media and technology have been playing a huge part in keeping us connected during these crazy times, more and more evidence supports an association between social media, technology and negative mental health. Technology can impact negatively on many aspects of our lives, causing us to feel envy, depression and anxiety; affecting our sleeping patterns and impacting on our social skills, attention span and human connections.

It’s important to find that balance. It’s time to find our happy place.

Quick fixes like screen time reports are helpful when it comes to controlling time spent on devices, but what about when we come up against anxiety-inducing content?

What we need is an opportunity to get in front of the negativity, there and then. An instant escape from content that makes us feel rubbish – that will put a smile on our faces or give us time to take a deep breath.

Put a stop to endless scrolling

Cut short mindless scrolling. Give yourself time to tune out from social media
and ease back into reality.​​​​​​​

That awkward convo

When it comes to virtual dating, there's always a conversation you'd rather not have. 
How about escaping to the world of AR?

Sometimes it might feel like there's nothing to get you up in the morning.
Maybe puppies will help...​​​​​​​
