Abstract The concept of IT mindfulness involves developing a mindful approach to technology and the digital world. It focuses on being present and intentional in our interactions with technology, rather than being driven by automatic and habitual behaviours. By practicing IT mindfulness, we can enhance our well-being, reduce stress and overwhelm, and cultivate a healthier relationship with technology. This means becoming more aware of our digital habits, setting boundaries, and consciously choosing how we engage with technology. IT mindfulness encourages us to question how and why we use technology, reflect on our values and priorities, and make intentional choices that align with our goals and values. IT mindfulness aims to help individuals maintain a healthy and balanced relationship with technology and avoid the potential negative consequences of excessive or mindless digital consumption, such as increased stress, reduced productivity, and decreased well-being. It encourages people to use technology as a tool to enhance their lives, rather than allowing it to control or overwhelm them. Key principles of IT mindfulness include being present by paying attention to what you are doing when using technology, rather than mindlessly scrolling or multitasking. It involves setting boundaries by establishing clear limits on technology use to prevent it from interfering with other important aspects of life, such as work, relationships, and personal well-being. It requires practicing digital detox by taking breaks from technology to reduce screen time and recharge mentally and emotionally. Being conscious of the content you consume online, from the news and social media to entertainment and information is important. Prioritizing face-to-face interactions and real-life experiences over virtual ones is an important aspect of IT mindfulness.
