Designing your Digital Guardrails with Dr Kristy Goodwin

Let me know if any of these resonate for you… are you feeling overwhelmed, under the pump, stressed, completely time poor and like there aren’t enough hours in the day, which is leaving you totally exhausted and easily distracted...?

Sounding familiar? Well, you are not alone.

My guest today Dr Kristy Goodwin is here to tell us that thanks to our technology that has pervaded every corner of our lives, we are now living and working in ways that are completely incongruent with our neurobiology.

Dr Kristy has made multiple appearance here on the podcast and with the release of her latest book, Dear Digital, we need to talk, I had to have her back to share with us the impact that our “always on” digital world is having on us both personally and professionally.

Dr Kirsty is an award-winning research and speaker, who is on a mission to promote employee wellbeing and bolster workplace productivity.

As one of Australia’s digital wellbeing and productivity experts, she shares practical brain-based hacks to tame tech habits and the latest evidence-based strategies to decode the neurobiology of peak performance in the technological era.

Dr Kristy works with senior business leaders and HR executives across the country’s top organisations to support them in promoting employee digital wellbeing and performance.

In today’s conversation she’s shares with us the research and statistics on how our digital devices are impacting everything from our cortisol and stress levels to our sleep and even how we breathe! But don’t worry, she’s not going to just tell you all the bad things about our tech or recommend a digital detox, she also shares with us some simple, easy to adopt ways that we can tame our tech using her micro-habits, and implement “digital guardrails”.

Whether you are looking for easy ways to steal back your focus or a people and culture leader looking at how your organisation can foster digital boundaries as we navigate new, unchartered flexibility territory, Dr Kristy shares her ideas on how to make this a reality.
