“My advice would be to gain a greater awareness of what you’re presently doing. Think about balancing in the vitamins of wellbeing – physical diet, mental health, social – are you getting all those things together in your day?”

- Dr Christine Grant, Coventry University

“If we look at how we sometimes speak to ourselves with that inner critic, we would never talk to one of our loved ones in that same way. We need to offer ourselves some kindness.”

- Elizabeth Marsh, DWG

Digital wellbeing has become a hot topic for 2020. With so many of us now working from home, juggling time and technology, and always being “on”, escaping from work can be very difficult.

For our guests in this episode, finding the right balance has been at the centre of much of their work. Elizabeth Marsh, DWG’s Research Director, is a strong advocate of digital literacy and digital mindfulness at work, and has recently authored Digital workplace overload: How to reduce employee technostress. Dr Christine Grant is a leading applied researcher in the psychology of remote e-working and agile working, and has co-edited Agile working and well-being in the digital age.

Together with Paul, they discuss the highs and the lows of remote working, share insights from their respective research projects, and offer practical advice on how we can all start to build a more balanced working day.
