319: From Digital Distraction to Digital Wellness: Insights and Strategies for Better Tech Use w/ Dr Kristy Goodwin

I like to think that the real work that I do in the world is to help women get out of “integrity pain”. The very real mental, emotional and even physical pain that results from living life out of alignment with what you truly want for your life.

And one of the things creating a tremendous amount of integrity pain for my clients is their relationship with technology.

We are living in a world that relies on it and we are failing BIG TIME at regulating ourselves around it in a way that honors our body and brain.

So, thank goodness for gems like my guest on this week’s episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, Dr Kristy Goodwin, who has made it her life’s work to help people better understand the neurobiology of our tech use and how to build a relationship with it that helps us nourish our health rather than deplete it.

We cover a LOT of ground in this interview, including:

  • Why digital detoxes don’t actually work.
  • How to reduce micro-stressors coming from tech use,
  • How to increase biological buffers so your body is more resilient to tech use,
  • Neuroproductivity principles to improve your relationship with tech,

… and so much more!

Say it with me “my body is NOT the problem!”

Ahhh…doesn’t it feel great to release the chains you’ve lived with for so long?
