EPISODE 232
We are living in an era of technology obsession and smartphone addiction. Someone else always has an addiction, but have you looked in the mirror? Are you willing to self reflect and see if you have a smartphone addiction? Today’s podcast takes a good look at how this behavior may be influencing your career and personal life.

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
Too much technology diminishes our mental and physical health, harms our relationships and decreases our productivity, happiness while increasing anxiety, depression and comparison with others.

Change your technology habits to preserve the benefits, while minimizing the negative effects. Here are some strategies, tools and behaviors to use at both work and at home.

  • Avoid “reply all” in emails. They are distracting and often unnecessary. Think about who and why you’re involving everyone. Can you take care of the issue easily in a 2 minute phone call?
  • Recalibrate your response time. Look at what it costs you to immediately respond when a response could wait. You’re missing out on interactions with people you are with.
  • Take a 5 minute restorative break. Deep focus for 60-90 minutes then take a brain break. Leave the environment that you’re in. Leave your phone behind!
  • Bring back friend and family time. Technology has stolen our personal interactions. Put the personal devices away!
  • Keep technology out of the bedroom. Your brain needs the rest. It affects your love life.

 

QUOTES BY CHRIS
