I'm Catherine Price, science journalist, author of How to Break Up With Your Phone and founder of Screen/Life Balance.

If you add up the hours you spend each day interacting with your phone, tablet, laptop, desktop or television, you may realize that you’re spending the majority of your waking life staring at a screen. Sure, much of this screen time is useful or necessary, even enjoyable. But there are a lot of other times when our screens distract us from things that are truly important to us—whether it’s the people we love or the activities that bring us meaning and joy. I created Screen/Life Balance to help people (myself included) take back control over how we’re spending our attention and time. Welcome to our community.

The #FunSquad

The Power of Fun comes out December 21. I'm starting a pre-launch Fun Squad: a global group of people who are interested in having more fun (starting NOW) and helping to make the book launch a success. Participants get access to sneak peeks, giveaways, live calls and more.

The Pandemic Postcard Project

Has a year of social isolation made you lonely? I've created the Pandemic Postcard Project as a way to bring people together and lift our collective spirits. The idea is simple: send a cheerful postcard to a friend or leave one in a stranger's mailbox. You don't have to use our postcards, of course, but if you do, I'll donate 2x my profits to the National Domestic Abuse Hotline.
