Online Stress Summit

Screen Shot 2018-10-30 at 16.22.47Tomorrow our second international Online Stress Summit will go live and we trust that you are looking forward to it as much as we do.

Danielle and I are proud to present this Online Stress Summit as part of the Belgian contribution to International Stress Awareness Day, a day where all around the world awareness is raised around the dangers of stress.

We do this with sharing the meaningful and authentic conversations we had on the topic of “DOES HI-TECH CAUSE HI-STRESS” with experts from the US, Canada, England, Netherlands, South Africa and Belgium

  • Each expert has given their insights, tips and strategies as professionals as well as human beings, having families and personal challenges.
  • We get to see and hear how they deal with technology personally and how they advise us, as experts, to navigate in this fast-changing world.

Every interview has its own angle and character. We sincerely trust that you will enjoy watching them and talk about them with your surroundings.

One thing is sure: It is tempting to let technology control our lives, while the challenge is to consciously choose what we want technology to do for us. At the same time, it is essential to keep our basic priorities of authentic, purposeful living and human connection.

If you do not have the time during the day tomorrow, no worries as we have arranged for each interview to be available on the website, social media, and as a podcast from November 8th.

The conversation on “Does Hi-Tech Cause Hi-Stress?” starts tomorrow and hope you’ll help us to continue it for the rest of the year as this topic touches not only our lives but the lives, health and well-being of generations to come, of our children and grandchildren.

So join us in one of the most important conversations of our time.

How to become better at being human?

Screen Shot 2018-09-09 at 17.00.31Our second international Online Stress Summit is only 6 days from now and we are getting excited about everything that we have in place for you.

In the last weeks, we have talked more about the link between technology and stress than ever before: at home, in our practice, during social interactions and of course in our interviews with global experts. Clearly, almost everybody is intrigued, to say the least, about what the future of high-technology, automation and artificial intelligence is going to do with us as human beings.

And one thing is sure: It is more important than EVER to emphasize the “human” and the “being” in our society. If we want to stay in control and use technology in a positive way, we need to manage and adapt our behaviour around technology. At the same time, keep our basic priorities of authentic, purposeful living and human connection.

Each expert that we interviewed gives his/her own view, knowledge and tips on how to do that. Every interview has its own angle and character. We sincerely trust that you will enjoy watching them and talk about them with your surroundings.

“Does Hi-Tech Cause Hi-Stress?”can be a topic for the rest of the year as we will keep on spreading this Summit globally for everyone to watch, also after November 7th. It touches not only our lives but the lives, health and well-being of generations to come, of our children and grandchildren.

So join us in one of the most important conversations of our time.

Why the Royals Are Almost Never Seen Holding Their Phones and How Science Says We Can Benefit From Their Habit

The benefits go beyond just etiquette. By Nora Battelle, Multimedia Staff Writer at Thrive Global

Prince_Harry_and_Meghan_Markle

You may notice that Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and other members of the royal family are almost never photographed

with their phones out. The royals avoid being seen with cell phones so assiduously you might even think they don’t have them at all.

But Harper’s Bazaar pointed out a phone in Prince Harry’s pocket during his current visit to Australia with Meghan Markle, and Markle was spotted by the Daily Mail with her iPhone while departing the city, so we know that’s not the case.

What is Technoaddiction?

In 3 weeks time on November 7, ‘International Stress Awareness Day‘ we’ll dedicate with the Online Stress Summit a whole day on the topic “Does Hi-Tech cause Hi-Stress?

Danielle and I have interviewed international experts and asked them their view on the positive and the adverse effects technology can have on our health and well-being including technostress, game and technology addiction.

Technology addiction is a broad term that refers to the uncontrollable urge to use technological devices such as computers, smartphones, and gaming systems. Technology addiction appears to be more prevalent among teenagers, but is found amongst the broader population as well. According to the International Journal of Neuropsychiatric Medicine, as many as one in eight Americans suffers from some type of technology addiction.

Technology addiction is a recently identified addiction that has not yet been medically classified but has been linked to the widespread and rapid evolvement and use of technological devices. What actually causes technology addiction is not all that well understood. Researchers claim it may be a combination of inherent genetic traits and elements in the environment. These three factors have been identified as possible underlying causes of technology addiction:

  1. State of an individual’s mental health
  2. Personality traits
  3. Environmental factors
