Heal Thyself from Within the Metaverse
Talk Description :
After suffering from tremendous attacks on my health, I am choosing to heal myself through immersive technology.
Teaching in VR has brought me so much joy and now I have the ability to use the technology to facilitate a greater sense of wellbeing within me.
Join me on my journey towards total health as I explain how immersive VR can be used to heal oneself mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Wellness is a state of being, and I am reminded daily that I can harness the power of technology to increase my own lifespan.
The Metaverse being a virtual world that is rapidly gaining popularity as a platform for social interaction, gaming, and immersive experiences can also be used as a healing tool for those seeking a better sense of wellbeing.
The potential of the Metaverse to promote health and wellness is becoming increasingly recognized, with various applications being developed to improve physical and mental health, and to facilitate social connections.
As an educator, innovator, and entrepreneur, the impacts of a lifestyle centered around work can be detrimental.
However, unhealthy ways of being can be thwarted by using the power of immersive technology to change your mindset and physical body one exercise at a time.
