Embracing Tech: A Balancing Act

When all things “ holiday” begin approaching, it's totally normal to feel a mix of excitement and maybe a dash of overwhelm. The rush is real, and you might feel like you're not quite in sync with it all.
And whether your job requires you to be glued to your devices, juggling emails, Zoom calls, video editing, and social media, or you're more of a casual social media scroller and recreational tech user, curating your experience within this digital space is the key to navigating it with grace.
We’re here to guide you into how to make your digital spaces actually feel goood, and letting tech work with you instead of against you.
You see, technology can either be the key to your ease, productivity, and decision-making or the thief of it - it all depends on how you use it.
You might be asking yourself, how can I embrace tech and regain control??
Just like your morning routine sets the tone for your entire day, how you engage with tech can determine your overall digital experience. Imagine taking control of how you use technology daily— liberating, right?
Being Intentional with how you fill your digital cup and share it with others, will give you a huuuge sense of control and ease.
How can you achieve this?
🔎 Find tools to support you
  • It takes a lot of mental and emotional labor to try to remember everything off top of your head, you can take the pressure off yourself and allow tech to carry the weight for you!
  • This can look like leaning on intuitive systems like Notion for tracking your to-do’s, keeping a digital journal to be intentional with documenting, creating do-not-disturb modes in your phone for when you need to disconnect. 
✋🏽 Consume consciously
  • Instead of waking up to the sound of alarms, notifications, emails, and social media. What if tech became your go-to proactive solution for recharging, instead of a reactive one?
🎨 Curate your experience to stay inspired
  • Take the time to customize your digital environment and seek ease in what surrounds you. Get a wallpaper you love and brings you ease, keep your fav playlist rolling (peep this week freebies!), and a cute quote you can always see on your desktop to inspire you. Anything that makes it feel like home— that's the way to go.
A mindset shift to always remember: you are the creator of your life, and you are in control — your devices are just tools to help you along the way.
