Digital Detox: Digital Toxicity, FOMO & Art of Mindfulness
The topic of mindfulness is gaining great receptivity in the American culture, and not by coincidence, a parallel use of screen technology. Experts from MIT and Stanford University are now expressing concern with our love affair (screen addictions) with technology (known as FOMO: Fear of Missing Out, and Digital Dementia), citing an increased compromise of cognitive skills including short term and long term memory, attention span, and critical thinking. Enter the age of Mindfulness, an ancient practice to quite the mind from sensory overload. Dr. Brian Seaward will examine the scientific data of “screen addictions“, FOMO, as well as the newest research of neuroplasticity; regeneration of brain tissue produced from meditation and relaxation.
