The 7-Day Pick Up Challenge: This Is Your Brain on Social FUELED | wellness + nutrition with Molly Kimball

    • Health & Fitness

We spend an average of four hours on our phones each day, with most of us checking them 90-120 times, and for some, it’s 250+ pickups in a single day! This widespread obsession isn’t just sucking up our time; it’s taking a toll on our minds and spirits. This week, Ochsner Health neuroscientist David Houghton, MD, MPH, joins me to discuss why we’re constantly reaching for our phones; the connection between social media and anxiety, memory and social interactions; and a fun seven-day challenge to help us all develop better relationships with digital technology.
