Technology helps us connect with the world – at a cost. When behavioural scientist Dr. Heidi Forbes Öste wrote her dissertation on using technology to make us more physically present, she found toxic relationships with tech virtually the norm.

In today’s episode, Dr Heidi talks about the far-reaching effects of technological bad habits, and the simple behavioural changes you can start making today to greatly improve not only your relationship with technology, but also your quality of life.

After listening you’ll know:

  • Why having everything consolidated into one device (your phone) isn’t as great as it sounds.
  • The physiological damage caused by bad habits.
  • The importance of a regular technology detox.
  • Why fixed boundaries and guidelines don’t work for everyone.
  • How to define and set your own healthy boundaries.
  • When NOT to blame tech for your stress.
