Encore Episode: Digital Detox Plan
From autoplay on Netflix and YouTube to the endless scroll on social media sites, technology is intentionally designed to be addictive.

And, despite the ease and convenience it may bring to your life, technology can have detrimental effects. In any given day, the average person spends 11 hours on screens, 3 1/4 hours on smartphones, and only 34 minutes with their families. 

Human beings need human connection. In order to strike a better balance between FaceTime and actual face time, most people are in need of a digital detox. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean you need to remove all technology from your home.

Even a few simple steps like hiding addictive apps in a folder on your phone, pausing for five minutes before starting the next episode of a series you’re bingeing or putting your phone on gray scale can help. 

Listen as Liza Kindred joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss the importance of a digital detox.
