Start the New Year off by focusing on managing technology mindfully rather than letting it manage you!
I’m delighted to be speaking at this free London event organised by The Multimedia Information Technology Committee of Cilip on 9 Jan 2019.
I’ll be talking about How to feel better without logging off. Encounters with nature have measurable positive effects – heart rate slows, blood pressure goes down, stress melts away and the brain is more able to concentrate. This talk looks at how the same benefits can be gained by accessing nature in VR and online, and explains why we need more nature, not less technology. This is a chance to be mindful of the ways we connect to the natural world both on and offline.
I’ve updated the jacket designs for both the Kindle and Paperback editions of ‘Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age’. I hope you like them. I’ve rather fallen in love with the waterfall picture, which I got from Pixabay. It’s designed by Nguyen Hoang.
I especially love the paperback, which could make for a useful seasonal gift for the geek in your life! Available worldwide. (UK prices shown are correct at the time of writing.)
