Michelle Brigman Asks, “What Brings You Joy?”

The Healthier Tech Podcast

Sep 13 2022 • 30 mins

Michelle joins us in this episode to share her story of burnout, self-exploration, and self-discovery. She tells us how she learned to let go of some of the responsibilities that make you feel “always on”, to disconnect from all the stress, build time to calm your mind and body, and allow yourself to stop for just a moment. We talk about finding where you are in this moment, asking yourself if you are happy where you are in life, in your well-being, in your job, and getting down to the root cause of your dissatisfaction and unhealthy reactions.

We also discuss finding the things that genuinely bring you joy. We talk about letting go of all outside noise and distraction, technology included, looking inward at yourself, shifting the focus from what you have to give up or sacrifice to what you want in life, and figuring out how to get there. We explore what a healthy relationship with technology looks like, how Michelle uses it as a tool in goal-oriented empowerment, and how employing mindfulness and intention with your use of technology can help you achieve your goals. Finally, we talk about Michelle’s podcast Hard Won Wisdom, what that phrase means to her, and how she empowers other women to seek that wisdom.

In this episode you will hear:

  • What is work/life balance?
  • Finding what your true self is longing for
  • Are you getting enough joy out of life?
  • Overcoming old ideas of what joy means
  • Unplugging from the notifications and mindless scrolling
  • What does healthy technology use look like?
  • How self-image can become tied to our use of technology, e.g. social media
