Wonderful afternoon, thanks for hosting! I don’t expect all of the well-being equations to be quite so simple in the future though 😉

Thanks to for bringing this to my attention—I wasn't aware that Google had updated this page recently. Let's hope they continue to offer valuable information, rather than just becoming a marketing exercise! (6/7)

The above links appear to be available regardless of the options you provide but (unsurprisingly) take a very tech-centric approach to well-being—it is Google's approach to digital well-being after all! (5/7)

Only at the bottom of the page does it have the following links, which provide video clips with tips from experts about avoiding distractions and improving well-being related habits such as better sleep etc. (4/7)

When I give my real answers (e.g. low/moderate smartphone and social media usage, okay ability to avoid and focus) I get recommended a Google smart speaker... it seems the answer to good tech habits is to reward yourself with more tech! (2/7)

The (DW) page now has an option to evaluate your digital habits and receive "customised" advice based on the answers you give. I haven't done a deep dive into this yet but there are some initial findings. (1/7)

This is a🔥 & highly relevant paper "Tech policy works well, when it works for a broad range of constituents. Processes that fail to account 4 lived exp & perspectives of diverse groups run risk generating tech policy that perpetuates unjust exclusion"
