NCFDD: Wellness and Technology

April 28, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

We’re spending more time on social networks, viewing media, and checking our notifications, “likes”, and text messages… and it’s making us feel unhappy, stressed, and lonely.

So how do we “outsmart our smartphones”? How do we stop using our phones in ways that hurt our happiness, start using our phones in ways that boost our happiness, and build the skills we need to cultivate happiness in the context of an increasingly digital world?

In this webinar you’ll discover seven science-based steps for boosting happiness in the digital age and learn practical strategies for developing healthier their digital habits.
