Our declining mental health is the fastest growing global health issue of today. Why? The simple answer is, our brains are behind the times. You might have a 21st century package, but the hard drive is still from ye good old days. So while the feedback from those social media sessions might feel good, they also take a toll – as does being constantly connected at work and at home. Sleeplessness, anxiety, depression and burn-out are just some of the consequences when our brains overload.
But that doesn’t mean we’re helpless to change things. Learn to understand your brain and you’ll soon realize that treating it right comes down to some pretty basic things. Anders Hansen, the internationally bestselling psychiatrist and author of The Real Happy Pill, will let you into the secrets of the mind, among else answering these questions:
Why do we create fewer memories when we try to multi-task? Why do Silicon Valley professionals ban their kids from using Snapchat? And, most important of all, how can taking control of your screen time make you happier, healthier and more productive?
“No one can explain quite like Sweden’s most beloved psychiatrist, how our brains make us sit glued to our screens for hours on end each day.”
