In a world where we’re surrounded by technology 24/7, permanently switched on and always on call, Technotox is dedicated to understanding the impact Technology is having on our mental health and wellness.
We believe we would all benefit from stronger, happier connections (both with ourselves and others), if we spent less time online. Being a slave to our smartphones can leave us feeling brain dead, overwhelmed and unable to switch off. We live in a highly addictive digital age where the average adult now checks their smartphone 150 times a day, and more shockingly, teenagers up to 300 times a day!
Unsurprisingly this tech addiction is affecting our sleep patterns, concentration levels, mental health, connection to others and sadly, our happiness. Social isolation and loneliness levels are now on a par with early death through cause of smoking and obesity. We are more stressed out, depressed and ironically, less connected than ever before. And we’re struggling to find new ways to cope.
A wellness centre for the mind, Technotox provides ideas and inspiration to help you switch off to the noisy distraction of modern technology and realise the power of human connection and intimacy.
Our tips and tools include scientific studies, positive psychology interventions (a branch of psychology that studies the contributing factors that allow individuals and communities to thrive), mindfulness exercises and coaching methods, which we hope will help you create a healthier tech-life balance and leave you better equipped to love and thrive in this hectic digital age.
