Screen addiction impacts most of us, and there's little doubt it has a negative impact. Overuse of screens leads to anxiety, depression, decreased productivity, and more. Its impact is also clear in children. It turns out, it's not entirely our fault that we are so hooked. Apps accessed on screens give us dopamine hits that keep us coming back for more. In this episode, Megan talks about how we get hooked on screens and strategizes what we can do about it. She also shares her recent experience of pulling the plug on the kids cold turkey.
