Digital wellness tips for a positive employee experience

Taking a break from the digital world can refresh employees and promote a healthy work-life balance.

Technology is an everyday part of life.

People watch TV, play video games, shop online, test their patience with self-checkout kiosks and are captives to infinite scrolling on their mobile devices. And the list goes on.

Digital wellness -- taking a break from the digital world, reconnecting with people and rediscovering activities once enjoyed -- is essential to a person's well-being.

But digital wellness isn't just important at home during leisure time. It's also important in the workplace and helps employees achieve a healthy work-life balance and positive employee experience.

Digital wellness helps people achieve proper balance in their lives with technology. Overuse of technology can cause stress, anxiety, eyestrain, sleep disorders and isolation.

In this video, we will discuss four tips to promote digital wellness in the workplace. To learn more about the benefits of practicing digital wellness in the age of remote work, click on the link above or in the description below.

Digital wellness doesn't just mean disconnecting from devices. It's a comprehensive way to think about unhealthy relationships with technology and how it affects people's lives.

Proper digital wellness helps employees be engaged, productive, focused and lead healthier lives.

But what can businesses and employees do to address digital wellness in the workplace? Here are some tips.

Use time management apps. These apps help people control technology use and how much time they spend on a given task. This can help users manage their time online and create better time management skills.

Limit digital meetings. Meetings can lower productivity and increase stress. Managers should try addressing topics in an email or messaging apps -- such as Microsoft Teams or Slack -- to cause less interruption to employees' days.

Establish digital boundaries. Employees may have a hard time disengaging from their jobs with so many tools at their fingertips. Managers should encourage employees to set boundaries and not check email or talk about work outside of business hours.

Address eye strain. Blue light from screens can lead to poor sleep. Employees can combat this by wearing special glasses to block blue light. There are also free programs such as f.lux and Eye Pro to adjust computer screen lighting.
