The mission of Digital Wellness Day is to empower individuals, communities and organizations with research-based tools and strategies to flourish in a digital age. The 2020 inaugural Digital Wellness Day, hosted by the Digital Wellness Collective – a global trade association for digital wellness professionals and organizations – reached 1.2 million people worldwide.
Digital Wellness Day presents an opportunity to highlight best practices in digital wellness and highlight how technology can help us feel together rather than apart. COVID-19 triggered dramatic social-economic changes, resulting in many of us working from home and socializing remotely in a virtual world. Digital Wellness Day is a catalyst for exploring and sharing how we can evolve and flourish in this context of living and working, and encourages diverse audiences to publicly share their ideas and experiences regarding achieving digital wellbeing.
Resources for Digital Wellness Day include a Digital Wellness Toolkit, free Ebook “Guide for Surviving Thriving in the Remote Work Era” and a Community Engagement Guide. These materials will be available to Ambassadors of the virtual events, providing them with cutting-edge research and resources on digital wellness.
“Our team is delighted to be launching Digital Wellness Day and providing a toolkit to support individuals, educators, and organizations with resources for year-round digital wellness,” says Nina Hersher, co-founder and CEO of the Digital Wellness Collective. “We have the power to utilize technology in a way that fuels versus fatigues us. This knowledge is integral to the Digital Wellness movement – where each of us can become an embodied change agent toward a culture of digital flourishing.”
