I was struck by Lenore’s story, and as I step into fatherhood this year, I knew I had to have her on the podcast. Tune in to learn how parenting has changed over the past few decades, why safety has become a top priority for parents nowadays, and how unsupervised play and letting go a little are key in raising resilient, confident and independent children.
I discovered Catherine Price’s book, How to Break Up With Your Phone, during the height of what I like to call my “technology breakdown” this September. My relationship with my phone and Instagram was creating a lot of anxiety and resentment and discovering this book was the message I needed to explore and regain control in my relationship to technology.
Ever feel powerless to the powers of your phone and technology? I certainly have, and over the past few months, my relationship with tech has left me feeling more depleted and anxious than ever. So much so that I recently took my first break from Instagram in seven years! This much needed space allowed me to discover how to relate to my phone and social media on my own terms, and this journey led me to discovering the Light Phone. I was fascinated by this genius idea and the company behind it creating products "designed to be used as little as possible." Say what?!
Technology has completely changed our world, but have we adapted? The online revolution has opened new avenues for addiction, social connection, disconnection and distress. There are millions of ways that we are marketed to become addicted to technology: the colours, sounds, styles, ‘likes’, games and more. We can change our relationship to technology, but it means going so much deeper than just setting rules or limits. This weeks episode is so important, I will admit I have struggled with my relationship to technology and have learned so much from Miles on how to change this.
