Welcome to TechnoLife Wise Foundation

The TechnoLife Wise Foundation raises awareness of the effects that the overuse of technology has on our body, heart, mind, and soul. We aim to empower you with knowledge to make wise tech choices to ultimately live a healthy, purposeful life.

When we become too dependent on our digital devices, we tend to neglect ourselves and our loved ones. We trade real life for the virtual world, and become anxious, depressed, lonely, numb, and disconnected from our spirit. Wise tech choices enable us to strike a techno-life balance, live in harmony with the internet of things, and enjoy technology and life in equal measure.

TESTIMONIALS

Testimonial SAHETI Pre-Primary and Playschool PTA

Thank you so much for this educational talk. Every parent left feeling like they all needed to make changes in their children’s life. I look forward to supporting the Grade 8 challenge.

Chairperson: SAHETI Pre-Primary and Playschool PTA

Testimonial Tshwane University of Technology

We were thrilled to have Marlena as guest speaker at our annual Radiography Prize giving event. Her presentation contributed to the success of this prestigious event! What a wonderful person – her presentation was absolutely professional, exciting and so informative. The examples utilised are applicable to real-life and relatable to current situations. She had an impact on the audience (young and old) and has given them food for thought…and many are requesting her return! I would highly recommend Marlena to any school or organisation.
