Digital Wellbeing in 2023: Trends and Predictions

The world of technology is constantly evolving, and with the rise of smartphones, social media, and other digital devices, the topic of digital wellbeing has become increasingly important. As we move into 2023, there are several trends and predictions that are shaping the future of digital wellbeing.

  1. Increased Focus on Mental Health: With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on mental health, there is an increased focus on the role that technology plays in our mental wellbeing. Many organizations and companies are starting to invest in tools and resources to help individuals manage their mental health while using digital devices. Indeed, mental health has become a key element in health benefit packages provided by organizations. 

  2. More Personalized Experiences: With the rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning, digital devices will become more personalized, providing users with experiences that are tailored to their specific needs and preferences. This will include personalized notifications, content recommendations, and more.

  3. Greater Emphasis on Privacy and Security: As more personal data is shared and stored online, there is an increased emphasis on privacy and security. Companies and organizations will need to invest in stronger security measures to protect user data and prevent breaches.

  4. Greater Use of Digital Wellbeing Tools: With the growing awareness of the potential negative effects of technology on our wellbeing, there will be a greater use of digital wellbeing tools, such as screen time management apps or products that adding the digital wellbeing layer as a part of its core functionality are able to help individuals manage their usage and find a balance.

  5. Interoperability across Devices: As we use more devices, it becomes harder to manage the amount of time we spend on them. In the future, digital wellbeing tools will become more interoperable across devices, so users can monitor and manage their usage across all their devices with one platform.

  6. The relevancy of what's real. With the blurring lines between the digital and real world and the rise of fake news, people will demand the more and more experiences that are real and value human traits such as honesty and integrity.


Overall, the future of digital wellbeing is looking bright as technology continues to evolve and we become more aware of the importance of finding balance in our digital lives. As we move into 2023, we can expect to see more tools and resources that help individuals manage their mental health, personalize their digital experiences, prioritize privacy and security, and find a balance between technology and real-life.
