Title: The Future of Happiness: Living Mindfully in the Digital Era
Description: Technology - at least in theory - is improving our productivity, efficiency, and communication. Yet the ubiquity of smartphones and Internet access also coincides with historically high levels of depression and life dissatisfaction. Can our happiness, our health keep pace with the speed of innovation?
Amy Blankson, co-founder of positive psychology research firm GoodThink, has spent the last three years researching both the positive and negative impacts of technology on happiness. As part of her research, Amy tested over 400 gadgets, apps, wearables and devices in the well-being space and devised a system to help users evaluate and meaningfully integrate technology into their personal development and positive habits. In this engaging and interactive talk, Amy will share some of these actionable strategies for living mindfully in the digital era.
