Mindfulness & Technology
Technology, like computers and smart phones, gives us incredible access to information and one another. However, it can also easily take over our attention and have a negative impact on our wellbeing. Young people are growing up in a world where technology is everywhere. They are still developing, so they are even more prone to negative effects.
Through this interactive class, families will learn about how technology impacts people who use it often and who depend on it. We will:
- Review current research around screen use
- Identify your current technology habits
- Practice some mindful technology use
- Create a Mindful Technology Use Plan for your family
This class will teach you how to manage your technology use, and how to support mindful technology use in your family, rather than be controlled by it. Children over 10 who are accompanied by parent are welcome. The price is $15 per person.
