The Digital Wellness Institute provides the context for greater understanding and the tools to act as a better and more healthy relationship with our technology.

After taking the Digital Wellness Institute's courses through my company, I came away with greater awareness about how I'm looking after my health and digital wellness and what I can do to increase my productivity at work and lessen the feeling of burnout. These courses also served as a great reminder to set healthy boundaries for my tech usage habits.
