 Description:

Technologies have entered our lives and have created a real form of dependency, often not recognized. How to balance the real need of being online with a potential overuse and internet-addiction? Slow navigation and self-limitation on the use of social networks and internet could help us. Let’s learn how to set a new balance and take control of ourselves and our real needs, enjoying life and our spare time. We might find pleasure in using technology without stress with a discovered wisdom and awareness. It is also important to learn and develop good practices in tech-life balance, using technology in a way that doesn’t have a negative effect on your personal life or relationships.
