EP 2: Digital Distractions
This dynamic episode is for educators, parents and people like you who feel there is something just a little off about how much time and attention we devote to our devices throughout the day. Featuring the brilliant Dr Kristy Goodwin, we dive deep into conversation about the digital world’s impact on our personal and professional lives.
So what’s this episode really about?
- How our brain isn’t biologically wired to cope with constant digital bombardment.

- Decoding the neurobiology of peak performance.
- Practical ways to tame our technology use.
