"Smartphone Self-Defense: Reclaiming your Focus from Digital Distraction"
Technology is getting more addictive by the day, and that’s not an accident. Smartphones, social media, and online ads are engineered to hijack your attention and keep you hooked!
In this workshop we’ll learn “attentional self-defense”: simple, powerful methods for beating digital distraction, drawing ideas from mindfulness meditation, cognitive psychology, user experience design, and digital product philosophy.
