This is a guest post by Kaira Jewel Lingo, a mindfulness teacher and spiritual mentor I’ve met last year at a wonderful retreat in Devon, UK.

Already surfing the Internet in our downtime for pleasure, shopping, or to read up on news can be quite addictive, all the more so when we must be online all day for our jobs and our income depends on rapid responses and quick decisions to market trends. It’s so easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole and lose ourselves.
There are practices we can learn to help us to regain perspective, maintain our balance, joy, relaxation and ease and engage mindfully with technology. It’s not easy, but it’s extremely worthwhile.
