I Help Young People Build Balance Between Their Offline and Online Lives.
Oluwatosin Olabode, Executive Director at Doing Healthy Africa, author of 8 books including Digitally Well: Structures and Society in the Tech Era, and 2-time TEDx and international speaker, is Africa’s first Certified Digital Wellness Educator.
I am an alumnus of the Digital Wellness Institute (USA), an African Ambassador for Digital Wellness Day, a Barack Obama’s Young African Leader Initiative Fellow, a Tech Advisor for the American Based Musical, The StartUp, which uses theater to expatiate on digital wellness principles, a Guest Professional with Art & Tech for a Better World (Argentina), and a Wealth of Positive Energy!
I am a changemaker at the intersection of both the physical and digital world, facilitating ecosystems that promote more humane digital habits geared towards digital flourishing, and was nominated to speak on a highly sought-after panel for Digital Wellness Day- reaching over 7 million people in 36 countries in 2022. I am passionate about responsible tech usage and have completed the Foundations of Humane Tech Course by the Center for Humane Technology, USA.
As a digital wellness educator, I help individuals discover the essential skills they need to become digitally well in this fast-paced and ever-evolving digital world by showing them how to identify and stay true to their authentic selves, set boundaries that support their “intention and attention,” minimize distractions while amplifying “traction”, and use social media to enhance their mental well-being.
Understanding the unique challenges and opportunities that come with our increasingly connected world, I offer a range of services, including coaching, consulting, and training, in addition to my books, to help clients live digitally well. Whether you’re looking to improve your personal digital habits or create a healthier workplace culture, I can help you achieve your goals.
I have spoken on numerous platforms both locally and internationally, including: but not limited to: Youth 4 Youth Summit– Virtual, Concord, Massachusetts (2020/2021), Uniting to Prevent Suicide in Africa- Virtual- A Pan African Event, Humanitech- Virtual, New York, African Suicide Prevention Summit– Virtual, Africa, Dr. Lulu’s Stop Suicide Summit- Virtual, San Antonio Texas, TEDxUniJos– Plateau State, TEDx Gwallemeji- Bauchi, True Colours Outreach Bassa, Plateau State University ECWA Chapel Bokkos, ECWA Church Wuse 2, Abuja.
Oluwatosin is the Founder of Doing Healthy Africa- a digital wellness consultancy helping young people build the stamina and technical know-how needed to thrive within the digital world.
He is also the founder of Strengthening Society Today Foundation (DoubleST Foundation) – a youth-led NGO providing mental health interventions that bridge the gap between those that need help and those that can offer help.
He is the convener of the Emotional Man Group- a platform highlighting the importance of mentally stable men- Believing that emotions are a human construct and not gender-based, and emphasizing that everyone needs support structures.
The DoubleST Foundation and other platforms set up by Oluwatosin have been a way for him to execute his vision and mission of raising a generation of young leaders that will impact the world and he does this by helping them discover and utilize the positive energies within them towards living and leading a transformative life.
He believes the world can become a better place, one positive message at a time

Some of The Topics I Discuss
Digital Wellness: The importance of building balance to be able to digitally flourish
Who we are- Vision| Mission | Values | Expressions. I will help you craft them as we explore discovering who we are.
Intention and Attention Management
Can you really say that your intentions and attention are aligned?
I cannot overemphasize the importance of kindness, respect, and empathy within the digital world.
Support Structures and Connectedness
As humans, we were created for social connections. These give us support structures
Productivity & Wellbeing
Neither of these stand-alone- when things are working well for us, it influences our wellbeing positively and when things aren’t going well, it negatively impacts our wellbeing.
