Effective mindfulness practices for transforming your relationship with technology and reconnecting with your real life Our reliance on technology is rapidly changing how each of us experiences life. We're facing new issues and difficulties, we're encountering new emotional triggers, and we're relating to each other in new ways. As Dr. Nancy Colier writes, 'How we spend our time, what motivates us, and what we want are all are on a radical course of transformation.' The promise of technology is that it will make our lives easier; yet to realize that promise, we cannot be passive users-we must bring awareness and mindfulness to our relationships with our devices. 'The compulsion to constantly check our devices plays on primal instincts,' teaches Colier. 'Even people with strong spiritual practices or those who have never had other addiction issues now find themselves caught in the subtle trap of these miraculous tools we've created.' Through The Power of Off, she offers us a path for making use of the virtual world while still feeling good, having healthy relationships, and staying connected with what is genuinely meaningful in life. You'll explore: * How and why today's devices push our buttons so effectively, and what you can do to take back control of your life. * Tips for navigating the increasingly complex ways in which technology is affecting our relationships-with ourselves, others, and our devices themselves. * Self-evaluation tools for bringing greater awareness to your use of technology. * Mindfulness practices for helping you interact with your devices in more conscious ways. * A 30-day digital detox program to kick-start a new healthier relationship with technology. With The Power of Off, Colier sounds the call for wakefulness, reminding us that we can use technology in a way that promotes, rather than detracts from, our well-being. This book provides an essential resource for anyone wanting to create a more empowered relationship with technology in the digital age.… (more)
