ZenScreen Balanced Digital Diet
The team behind ZenScreen have been working on a digital diet that doesn’t simply kick you off your phone for long period of time, but helps to tailor a more balanced approach to your daily social media use and app use.
The ZenScreen Balanced Digital Diet helps you prioritise the things that are essential. For example, work and education, as well as navigation and music! The app creates a pyramid of digital health, so users can see what really matters. Then, they apply it to their daily routines.

Significantly, this shows how constant the evolution of video is on social media. Find out more about the importance of social video here.
