When it comes to managing stress levels, getting a handle on your digital life is crucial 365 days a year (e.g., no, you shouldn’t be spooning your cellphone at night lest you miss an Instagram notification).
During the holiday season, however, it’s even more important.
When you’re baking cookies and bugging out over budgeting and shipping gifts, how you handle your relationship to technology could be what determines whether you sink (into a tangle of malfunctioning lights) or swim (happily in a sea of fireside hygge and joyful vibes).
Ready to make sure you land on the latter this year? Check out the tips I've curated while attempting my own balance and learning what really sticks. Some will help you manage the tech you use daily in smarter, saner ways; some will encourage you to unplug for more human holiday connection; and a few even help you tap technology as a tool for stress relief.
