offline illness: a webinar exploring our social media habits
Through short guided meditations, writing exercises, and creative prompts, we explored the idea of habit versus choice and what part illness plays into our digital dependencies, then ended with tips on how to infuse some fun into our future time – both online and off.
We had some technical difficulties! This was our first time trying out Facebook Live in this workshop format! So we’re currently slicing the four videos on that feed into one, and that will be available here once it’s ready.
But it was a lovely 90 minutes of creative meditations and writing. Check out that feed starting here for the workshop, and download the accompanying PDF for the slides, exercises, and further notes that will help you dig into the resources I speak about. (They can be found on my resources page here.)
The Me, Without Guided Meditation
When we intentionally question our habits, we often face feelings left in the wake of our lost sugary treat, social media hit, or digital distraction. For those audio-inclined, hypnotherapist Iris Higgins’ soothing ten-minute guided meditation will help you relax your body, identify where you feel strong emotions, and assesses immediate needs. This quick reset can be done wherever and as often as you need for greater clarity, calm, and a lightened load.
