We invite everyone to join the livestream and listen to some practical advices and use cases on how to prevent digital burnout (in Russian).
Digital burnout, or the feelings of anxiety, exhaustion, and apathy caused by spending too much time on digital devices, is a growing problem. As technology makes us more interconnected and as the pandemic forces more of us to rely on computers, tablets, and smartphones for work, the risk of burning out becomes higher.
According to general research, people usually turn on or look into their smartphones every 17 – 18 minutes, they are available online up to 16 – 18 hours a day.
The issue of digital burnout may be especially relevant for those who conduct educational programs that became online during the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as for those who take part in such programs.
During our discussion, we will talk about what digital burnout is and how to diagnose it, what to do to maintain balance and prevent digital burnout.
