Tech Talk: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week

2016-04-20 CDT Tech Talk LONG logo

CDT’s Tech Talk is a podcast where we dish on tech and Internet policy, while also explaining what these policies mean to our daily lives. You can find Tech Talk on SoundCloud iTunes, and Google Play, as well as Stitcher and TuneIn.

Admit it – there are moments each day where you wish you could just disconnect. We all likely experience a level digital anxiety and perhaps recognize some addictive habits with our tech use. 

And while research is really just beginning to show the real impacts on our wellness of this always on, always connected way of life, there’s little doubt most of us would like more balance. 

In this episode of Tech Talk, we welcome Tiffany Shlain, a filmmaker who would like to help us find that balance. She is the author of a new book, 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week, which takes a look at how disconnecting just one day a week can have positive effects on body, mind, soul.

Tiffany’s book is an engaging and empowering read. Check for it in your local bookstore or find it online.
