Tap Into Mindfulness - Students

A course designed to help you become more mindful in your use of your smartphone and other technology

Did you know that 84 percent of people can’t spend a single day without using their smartphone? What about the fact that most people now check their smartphone at least 200 times a day?

This addictive behavior, which is encouraged by how our smartphones and apps are designed, can have destructive real-life consequences. It can disrupt our relationships, sleep, and ability to focus even when we are not using our smartphone. It can even turn deadly when it takes the form of distracted driving.

If the kinds of problems I’ve described resonate with you in your own life and the lives of your family members, friends, and colleagues, then Tap Into Mindfulness is the course for you. Through this course, I teach people how to be less distracted by their smartphone as well as other technology and how to retake control of their time so they can be more focused, productive, and creative.
