Digital Minimalism in 2021

 

It isn’t hyperbole: Technology is in many ways taking over our daily lives. Research has found that children spend 1200 hours per year on technological devices. And adults? We waste approximately 6200 hours a year—or up to a staggering equivalent of 44 years of our lives—staring at screens. In this era of technological-everything, is digital minimalism even possible?

On today’s show I speak with Bill Brady, CEO of Troomi. As a father of five, Bill offers up his best tips for creating a culture within our homes that prioritize in-person time as opposed to screen time; he suggests action steps for adults looking to achieve digital minimalism, too.

 

Here’s a preview of this week’s episode:

[4:15] Beyond cyberbullying: The wide-ranging effects of technology on kids

[8:30] 3 House Rules that prioritize real-life relationships over virtual ones

[13:30] The importance of technological time-outs for working professionals

[20:15] How to know when your child is ready for a cell phone
