Screening you Screen Time
Introducing Ross Laird
Technology can be great for work and relaxation. However, sometimes our screens can become a form of addiction that takes us out from being present in the moment. This is exacerbated by the fact that now our screens are everywhere; they are at home, work, and even our wrists and pockets. This allows us the chance to slide into addictive personality traits, and even more so for the youngest amongst us.
Ross Laird is a writer, consultant, teacher, and creative artists that often consult on addiction. Like many others in the addiction field, Ross experienced the effects and loss from addiction amongst his family members. People in his circumstance will often take two paths; they either join their family members in their addictive traits or they try and heal the addiction. Ross took the second path.
This week’s episode will discuss some of the pitfalls of technology and what can be done to avoid our screens becoming enslaving.
