The digital age has brought us multitudes of advancements - from cost and convenience to connectivity - but those advancements have also left us fundamentally unbalanced, and often, unhealthy. As we advance further into an always-on culture that has developed through over-connectivity, overwork, and constant sensory overload, it has become essential to maintain a healthy balance with both work and technology.

At KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Barcelona, the OSMI Handbook did a great job of outlining some tips that attendees can use to maintain their mental health at such large events. We’d like to take that conversation a step further by talking about some techniques that the Cloud Native Community can use in their lives, both personally and professionally. Join us for a diverse panel discussion to share ideas on maintaining a healthy and balanced mental state.
