The science behind digital wellness

To solve one of the defining issues of our time, you need a team of experts who understand the science behind the problem. The Digital Flourishing® Model is a proprietary and scientifically supported framework that was developed by leading researchers and academic institutions across North America. It takes a holistic view of how we interact with technology and its impact on well-being.

Micro Habits

Small habits that make a big impact

Digital Flourishing starts with recognizing the small choices we make every day that affect our ability to thrive in the digital age. While they may not seem like a big deal on their own, when put together, these Micro Habits make a significant impact on digital wellness.

From the way we respond to an unnecessary notification to the environment around us, our model helps build positive digital habits in each of the eight dimensions of Digital Flourishing.
