Are you getting your Digital 5 A Day?

Even though junk food tastes great, it would soon get boring if you ate it all day, every day and eventually it would probably make you sick. Just like food, a balanced digital diet is all about variety.

Having a healthy diet doesn’t mean that you never eat pizza or chocolate again but it is important that you eat them in moderation – along with your 5 fruits and veg a day! In the same way, you don’t have to give up your smartphone forever to have a healthy digital diet.

When phones, social media and games make us feel worried, stressed and a bit out of control, it often means that we haven’t got the balance quite right.

Finding the right digital balance means enjoying all the fun, exciting and creative things about being online while making sure that we aren’t caught doing the same things all the time.
