We are so glad you are here!
When coming up with our name, I wanted a word that described what tech and screens should be... I thought of healthy, safe, conscious, intentional, and ultimately decided on mindful. Mindful: conscious or aware of something.
We need to be aware of how much time we are spending on technology. We need to be aware of the negative effects it is having on our brains, bodies, connections, and mental health. We also need to be aware of the dangers that lurk around every corner of the web... pedophiles, sex traffickers, pornography, it's all on the web, and its/they are click away unfortunately.
Mindful Family Tech ultimately wants to help you find "mindful" ways to use technology. Technology isn't meant to be this terrible thing. It is actually amazing to have access to so many incredible resources, connections to family and friends, education, and more... we just need to make sure we are being mindful "conscious and aware" that tech can be addicting, and cause problems to mental health if taken too far... and unfortunately it is being taken too far...
So join us, join our village, as we help families, young adults, teens, empty nesters, not be SO addicted to our screens. Let's enjoy this world, and have REAL connections, with REAL humans!
