Technology has completely taken over our lives. It’s everywhere, and we need it more than ever, especially right now that we’re in the midst of a pandemic.
You can immediately access any information you need in just a matter of seconds through click or voice command. It certainly makes our personal and business activities easier and more efficient.
And I’m certain that you’re probably reading this and listening to this podcast right now through your smartphone or computer!
But we’re too dependent on it to the point that it has disrupted our flow, productivity, behavior, relationships, and health. Technology is not bad, but how we handle it is a problem. Technology is great, and all but being overly connected also has its adverse effects.
Lack of sleep, stiff shoulders, eye strain, fatigue, social comparison... these are some of the causes of overusing/ misuse of tech devices and social media.
How can we avoid these pitfalls programmed into modern technology use?
Join me in this episode as we learn how technology is hijacking our lives with Erik Peper and Richard Harvey! They’ll also provide practical tools to avoid falling into traps and prevent and lessen technological stress!
