The key takeaways from his talk are: • Technology can be stressful • Digital devices can disrupt sleep • Heavy device use may be linked to health concerns • Constant connectivity affects study/life balance • Social Comparison makes it hard to be content • Digital connectivity can make you feel like you are missing out. Dr. Pavan Chand reinforced that “Detoxing” from digital devices is often seen as a way to focus on real-life social interactions without distractions. By forgoing digital devices, at least temporarily, people can let go of the stress that stems from constant connectivity. He encouraged the students to do a digital detox which will help in establishing a healthier, less stressful study-life balance.
