What is digital addiction?
A digital addiction is the compulsive need to use technological devices in a manner that gets in the way of daily life.
A digital addiction can feel like an inability to stay off devices despite the negative outcomes and feelings they cause. Digital addiction can also develop as a response to depression, anxiety, mood disorders, or an effort to escape daily life.
How can digital addictions be addressed?
Digital addictions can be addressed by limiting screen-time, turning off distractions, and setting real boundaries around things like social media and internet use.
