Digital mindfulness - more important than ever

The phone is ringing storm, the work chat pings continuously and the e-mail inbox is overflowing - the digital transformation of the working world does not only bring innovation. We are always connected, always available and “switching off” is out of the question.

We live in a time of overstimulation that is increasingly overwhelming and will not decrease. High levels of stress and a constant feeling of overwork and overload are no strangers to many. One solution that was ridiculed by many until recently and was written off as a fad is that of mindfulness - referred to as “digital mindfulness” in relation to digitization.

Digitization is not just a blessing

Thanks to increasing digitization, we are more flexible, freer and can organize our time and tasks more independently. But what has also increased: autonomous work, the expectation of great planning competence and optimal time management. Not everyone is made for this type of work or finds it easy right away. Especially in those moments when you are overwhelmed by the flood of input and connectivity.

Slowing down is hard to think of. The freedoms of today's working world can also be extremely overwhelming. Everything has to be faster, better, bigger - and the most important thing falls by the wayside, namely ourselves.

Just pause for a moment

Mindfulness means to reflect on the here and now and to focus on the moment. It's about enjoying the moment without thinking about the next meeting or the long to-do list. You just have to allow yourself to find the time for it - but what is often the problem.

Even if the work load is immense, you should take the time to take a step back and create space:

  • Do you really have to react immediately to every email or are just not relevant at the moment?
  • Which task is most urgent and has to be completed? Make sure to prioritize your to-do list. There is always enough work, you have to learn to assign yourself tasks and work through them in the right time frame.
  • You don't have to do everything yourself - delegate whatever you can and thus gain more focus on the really important tasks, without distractions.

More mindfulness in everyday life

We have never had as many opportunities as now to shape and divide our life and never have terms such as mindfulness, self-care or work-life balance been so omnipresent at the same time. Understandable when you consider how fast our time is and how multitasking we have to be.

Stress in everyday life or at work will always be part of our lives - we have to learn to put ourselves first. It is perfectly okay not to be available for other five minutes a day: whether meditation, drawing, writing, yoga is entirely up to you. The main thing is that you experience this time consciously and only for yourself.
