What is digital stress?

Digital stress is that feeling of anxiety, exhaustion and overload that we experience when we are constantly connected to our digital devices. Whether it’s checking emails, scrolling through social media or dealing with endless notifications, digital stress can seriously affect our mental health and well-being.

Digital stress in software development

If you work in the world of software development, you know as we do that we live and breathe technology. We are constantly connected, attending emails and meetings, responding to team messages or writing on Slack, Teams or WhatsApp. All this can lead to digital stress.

Digital stress in software development manifests itself in a number of ways. From the pressure to meet tight deadlines to the constant need to be online to solve problems. So we know it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

The dilemma of the digital age

In the information age, technology has become essential to our lives and work. However, too much time spent in front of screens can lead to fatigue, disconnection from personal relationships and decreased productivity.

So how can we find a healthy balance?
