Welcome to the possibility of Life-Technology Balance

about
Hello!

I am Dr. Nidhi Gupta, a Pediatric Endocrinologist and an advocate for Digital Wellness

It's my dream to bring a wealth of knowledge about digital wellness to children and adults. I do not suggest that we live without our smart devices in the modern age. However, it is important to analyze our ‘relationship’ with our devices and heal it, if needed. I suggest small but significant changes that might help you achieve life-technology balance in a variety of settings, such as at home, work and vacation.

Small changes when made repeatedly and consistently, become long-term habits!

I feel like I can go on and on about all of the wonderful things that have happened since Saturday. Firstly, I left the seminar feeling so grounded and so much more aware of all the sights and smells around me. I did not even want to turn my phone back on. In fact, my phone usage has been down by 99% since Saturday. I have deleted my social apps, not the accounts, but I have deleted the apps, and I have also blocked all social media on my work computer. So, the only way I can access them is by firing up my laptop. And as a result, I have stopped scrolling, I have stopped feeling weird about uncomfortable content that I see on TikTok and Facebook. I have stopped comparing myself to others on Instagram. I cleaned my kitchen, I cooked, I have been cleaning, I have been exercising. I feel like I am starting to take my life back. The messages that were shared, the data, the science, were so compelling and awesome to know.

I'm going to give you guys a story. It was a story, but a real fact. After the session, I got in my car in the building. I was supposed to pay $3 for parking, and I stayed one extra minute to try to catch up on my messages. I ended up paying for 3 hours 1 minute, and I could have left the building for three-hour parking instead of trying to check my messages and catch up a little bit with my social media. I stayed 1 minute extra and I end up paying $8 for parking so I'm a victim of the phone situation. I just wanted to say that it cost me money to stay on the phone. I just wanted to drop the joke here because this morning, I was so pissed when I had to pay $8 for parking.

I really enjoyed it tremendously. But I had my mom hat on when I went and I brought my two daughters and I thought, they are going to get some information about them on their phones and when you gave that test, I thought, OH MY GOSH! This is about me too. So it was a wake-up call to me, totally. And I scored higher than my daughters, I'm not kidding. I thought, okay, I hear it, I feel it, I'm on board, and we have had conversations each day since. My family and I are on a mission, so I have to thank you. It's the mindful part that really spoke more than anything. We are going to be in the moment. So thank you for that.

I loved the event! So what I want to talk about are the changes that I noticed in myself when I came into the event. When I came to this event, I thought, "Oh, I don't have an issue with devices, I am really good with my time and not being on social media". But when I left, I realized that I spent more time on social media and on the phone than I thought. I began noticing that when I was on the phone, I became more mindful of the time I was spending on my phone. I think that's the thing I want to say. I was more mindful of my behavior. And then the other thing that I became present to was when Tara told the stories, I was so moved by Caroline and your son's story. I agree with the balance at ReConnect between the intellectual, the scientific, and then the human part. I know it made a huge difference in my life.

I really enjoyed the event. The stories that you shared really connected with me and with most of the audience. We got a lot of practical points and tips on how to minimize or use the tools of the mobile device more effectively. And personally, I also scored a little bit high on the scoring questionnaire, so I'm trying to be more mindful and improve my behavior around WMDs. I went for a couple of walks without taking my phone with me. I have to dig up my wristwatch and get new batteries on it now so that I don't have to check my phone for the time. I think it was really powerful. I also wanted to point out that the compulsive use, or addiction to the use of the mobile devices is causing a lot of diseases. As a physician myself, I see that diabetes, endocrine diseases, thyroid diseases, and PCOS, all of these are on the rise. Younger and younger people in their twenties, and thirties are getting diabetes. That is because several things are getting missed like sleep, exercise, and social connections, family time is getting missed because of this addiction and that is causing a rise in the mental and physical health problems.

For me it was threefold, the experience was balanced. In my opinion, you guys provided not only deep knowledge but also practical tools. You moved the narrative into big thinking, big ideas, and very practical, habitual things that we all can implement. It was a really good balance and I applaud you for that. The second thing is I am also in the business of efficiency and what it reminded me of is the importance of us respecting our own time by letting others know, "I'm doing this, I don't want to be distracted". So creating those boundaries for you to be efficient, was a really good reminder. Third thing for me was a wow moment that while we were talking more about the idea of wireless devices as being our phones, but also including the TV screens in those, because I guess I'm a little bit better with the phone. But what the TV was doing to me was taking me away from the things that I should be doing. So now when I'm sitting down and taking 20 minutes break that's when I want to watch TV. I'm doing it consciously. I am deciding to take this 20 minute break, and I'm going to watch TV because that is what I want to do and not because I don't have anything else to do. So it was that threefold balance, very deep thoughts and tips. Second, efficiency focus, creating those boundaries. And third for me personally was the TV reminder. Like if you are going to do it, you better have a good reason for what you are not doing while you are watching TV.
