Most of us use digital electronics, whether games, email or social media. And, while technology has a multitude of advantages, many of us have an unhealthy attachment, along with an unrelenting need to feel “connected”, that affects us on many different levels and in many different areas of our lives. Are you one of them? Are you feeling caught up in the digital and social media madness? This program will talk about whether “digital addiction” is real, how to assess your degree of “unhealthy attachment” and what new habits can help you reclaim your power over digital technology.
Join us on Wednesday, February 15th at Kalypso’s Sports Tavern in Reston for this great event.
