Developing a Sustainable Lifestyle

Core principles of developing a sustainable relationship with digital technology

Sustainable Living Practices

Fostering a natural, symbiotic relationship with people and the earth involves educating each other and communities to make healthy sustainable choices in the way digital technology is used and integrated into everyday life. Social, environmental, and economic stewardship involves caring for oneself, each other and the earth.

An example of sustainable lifestyle practices include:

  • Managing digital technology use rather than having it manage you
  • Setting limits and time frames for technology interactions
  • Being selective and balanced about the type of technology interactions engaged in

Too much digital technology use or distraction may lead to unsustainable lifestyle practices, such as:

  • Disinterest in physical fitness, movement or exercise
  • Poor nutrition and dietary choices
  • Poor sleep hygiene, sleep deprivation, and chronic fatigue
  • Emotional distress, depression and anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
