The term “digital life balance” refers to a way of living in which a healthy balance between “digital life” and “real life” is achieved. Digital life balance” occurs when there is a healthy balance between the parts of life that are closely related to digital technologies and the other areas of life that take place independently of the use of digital technologies, either in the personal perception of the individual or in an intersubjective view of the allocation of the time spent or the activities carried out.

In particular, the term “digital life balance” refers to the fact that those human activities that focus attention entirely on the virtual world, cyberspace or the digital infosphere do not take over to such an excessive extent that they draw attention away from real life in the entisphere. The latter is often associated with a potential lack of direct experience of the social, biological and physical environment.
