The IDEA – Find the media balance that is healthy for you!
We love digital media. They enable communication with you and being in contact with everybody around the globe. Digital media and devices simplify our lives, taking more and more tasks off our shoulders: They navigate us past traffic jams to our destination; we learn what the weather is going to be like, and we can order things promptly. We appreciate that, and we appreciate our freedom, which we do not want to lose.
But let’s be honest: Are you still able to do without your media devices? Are you free to choose? To what extent are you able to exist in the here and now without being permanently available?
Do you feel stressed by media communication from time to time? Is it impinging on your sleep? Media fasting helps preserve your freedom and self-determination!
During media fasting, participants refrain from using all or some parts of digital media. You establish your own fasting rules and are your own judge.
Are you able to keep fasting together with your media fasting fellows? Seize the opportunity of making a fresh start at the end of the fasting period: What are my goals? When dealing with social media, how can I achieve that it is ME who decides what is happening when?
Find your own media balance. We offer various projects to support you!
The project video is currently in progress.
Here you can see a video of the two initiators at the conference "Future of Childhood".
This clip was created at the working meeting of the Lifestyle Initiative in autumn 2018: www.lebens-weise.org
In the context of an expert conference with over 50 experts from the fields of medicine, education, economics, psychology, media sciences as well as therapists and students of various disciplines, the topic of childhood in times of digitalisation was identified as the area in which there is an urgent need for action so that children can grow up healthy.
Do you have any questions, ideas or suggestions, and would you like to get involved?
