What does individuality mean in the digital age? There are technical ways to express your individual needs faster and more directly than ever before. With your need for individuality, you are always placing new demands on technology. You accelerate digital transformation. At the same time, you benefit from the possibilities that new technologies bring to the table. A perpetual motion of technological progress and sociological change is emerging.
However, there is a downside to life in a connected world with all the newfound freedom of being able to communicate with anyone, anywhere and at any time: Those who lose control of their means of communication quickly feel overwhelmed. The boundaries between your private life and your job quickly merge and it is increasingly difficult for you to maintain distance, to set boundaries, and to be your own master. Meanwhile, psychologists are now diagnosing a symptom called digital anxiety – this is the moment when human individualisation turns into emotional loneliness.
Do you feel like you spend too much time using non-relevant apps? Or on communication channels that lead to higher stress levels rather than concrete benefits? Treat yourself to a digital break – this too belongs to human individualisation in the digital age! We have compiled 10 tips for you on how to maintain a healthy use of new technologies.
You know it best yourself: The digital universe is growing relentlessly. The volume of our communication data doubles every two years, and this is only going to increase exponentially in the future. Whether you like it or not, you are part of a communication network that is universally available, operates 24/7 and that continues to grow. The digital age has probably created the best conditions for human individualisation. It is our responsibility to make the most of this and to place human beings at the centre of digital transformation.
