Here is this week’s 1% MORE—4 short prompts using Mind over Tech’s M.O.R.E framework to trigger tiny improvements to your digital habits.
This week's theme is: 🧡 Wellbeing

a trigger to inspire motivation
Writer, consultant and ex Microsoft VP Lina Stone observing her breathing habits:
“As the email spills onto my screen, as my mind races with thoughts of what I’ll answer first, what can wait, who I should call, what should have been done two days ago; I’ve stopped the steady breathing I was doing only moments earlier in a morning meditation and now, I’m holding my breath.
And here’s the deal. You’re probably holding your breath, too.”

an approach to gather data
Be curious about the quality of your breath at various times of day.
Take note of what you find—the rate of breath, is it through the nose or mouth, are you holding your breath?
a prompt to inspire change
What did you notice about the quality of your breath when using your tech?
What is it like when dealing with your inbox? How about when using social media?
an invitation to disrupt your digital habits
Practice a controlled breathing technique—such as box breathing—regularly to rewire your nervous system through the slow, deep diaphragmatic breathing patterns.
Until next week,
