The goal of the Digital Wellness initiative is to bring together thought leaders from wellness, healthcare, technology, government, and education to serve as a think tank evaluating research and advocating for policy and education on the healthy use and adoption of technology.
There is a growing cadre of experts from across a variety of disciplines who are beginning to think about these issues. Sub-disciplines that fall under Digital Wellness include Digital Ethics, Digital Citizenship, Digital Mindfulness, Digital Nutrition, and Digital Education.
The need is emerging for a new field of Digital Wellness that brings together these diverse viewpoints on the relationship between technology and wellbeing and seeks to establish a holistic and unified approach to these issues.
By establishing healthy guidelines and boundaries for our relationship with technology, a holistic and sustainable approach to technology use and adoption will allow us to maintain elements of our non-digital humanity in the age of technology.
