Digital Technology and Health: Is there such a thing as balance?
Listen to todays show, 3/27/17, on KPFA
Do you and family members have a healthy media diet? If so, how do you set limits?
My guests, Jason Brand and Caroline Knorr discussed how digital technology impacts our relationships with family members and friends.
Is it possible to find balance and health while being connected to our phones, computers, and electronic games?
And, you can hear Jason and Nurse Rona’s podcasts called Digital Diaries at https://www.nurserona.com/?s=digital+diaries. Keep in mind they were done in 2011, so there are many new things since then.
