#128 Is Your Smartphone Making You Anxious? feat. Dr. Lori Whatley
"All of that trauma is being displayed online and it is very unfortunate trauma and we are all very sensitive too and I’m very empathetic to all of it. But the constant barrage of it onto our system is re-wounding us over and over. Traumatizing us over and over. And can I help my brother If I am less reactive and able to approach situations with a calm” - Dr. Lori Whatley
In this episode of Happiness in Progress, you'll hear from Dr. Whatley who is a clinical psychologist. In her practice, she started to notice that excessive digital device use was at the core of many of her clients problems - anxiety, sleep, depression, relationship issues.
That's when she started to investigate how smartphones are impacting our entire worlds.
In this conversation, we talk about what she found. You'll also learn how to determine if you are too dependent on your phone, how you can start distancing yourself from it and the immediate impact you'll see and feel.
