How to live Mindfully in a Digital world
The tools we created to facilitate our lives now control us and our lives. More and more we rely on digital connection to attempt to fulfill our needs, but so many of our human needs cannot be met by a smart phone. Digital technology has enabled us to do things that ten years ago were unthinkable, but instead of freeing us and giving us more spare time to really enjoy life, our computers and smart phones have chained us to them. Skype and Facetime have taken the place of meeting with people; instead of playing with children, we use digital devices to entertain them; smart phone messages of no real importance are read while in the company of others. Through self-help assessments, step-by-step programmes and rebalancing techniques, Unplugged shows you how technology can still play an important role in your life but not at the expense of relationships, and shows how to create a healthy balance between the two.
