Mehret Biruk is a digital wellness coach with a passion to teach, inspire and empower individuals to discover the pleasures of the offline world.
A long time critic of the attention economy, Mehret began her journey towards digital wellness back in 2013 when she deleted her Instagram, Tumblr, and Snapchat accounts to take back control of her time and attention. She understood instinctively the psychologically invasiveness and addictive nature of social media platforms.
That decision jump-started her interest in learning more about how social media, our digital devices, and the Internet in general impacts our social, psychological, and physical well-being, and what we can do about it.
Based on her experience and personal journey, Mehret wants to help others discover the art of digital wellness, and the joy of unplugging from the online world. She has been sharing the lessons she has learned along her journey on her personal blog, minimallyonline.com (http://minimallyonline.com/).
Mehret has her MA in Sociology. Her background includes, research, mental health, peer counselling, program coordination, and community leadership.
