Since 1995, the amount of stress Americans feel has skyrocketed and is still escalating. This time correlates with the accessibility of personal computing in our homes.
Today, the constant barrage of distractions from smartphone notifications and other electronic media have penetrated our ability to concentrate and seriously slashed our productivity. So, how do we take back our lives and become better aware humans and a better society?
To explore strategies to keep us awake and aware, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two doctors about optimizing our lives.
Dr. Stuart Shanker discusses the many types of stress and his latest book, REFRAMED: Self-reg for a Just Society and Jim Davies Ph.D. walks us through his book, Being the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are, and what science says about how we can become better people and a better society.
Stuart Shanker is a distinguished research professor emeritus of philosophy and psychology at York University, and founder of the MEHRIT Centre, Ltd. He is a world-leading authority and bestselling author on the topic of self-regulation and child development, and the former president of the Council of Early Child Development.
