As the author of the book How to Break Up With Your Phone and the founder of ScreenLifeBalance.com, I have heard from thousands of people all around the world who tell me about their struggles with social media. They report feeling trapped in endless cycles of checking and posting. They tell me that they know that social media is causing them to feel anxious, insecure, out of control, and depressed—but they can’t seem to look away. Many people tell me that they’ve tried to cut back on their use of social media—sometimes multiple times—but that they always seem to end up right back where they started. They feel out of touch with reality, and unable to be present in their own lives.
And they’ve asked me for help.
I’ve read your emails and your comments, and I know that far from being a harmless diversion, social media truly has the capacity to hurt people. That’s why I’ve called upon my experience as a science journalist, author and coach to put together a ten-day guided course designed to help you redefine the way you interact with social media and reconnect with what matters to you in life.
My goal isn’t to get you to never look at social media again (unless that’s what you want).
My goal is to help you create a new, healthy relationship with social media—one in which you use it when it’s fun or useful, and stop using it when it’s not. In other words, I want you to be in control.
An online course and printable coursebook with 100 pages’ worth of materials, including:
An inside look into why social media apps are so addictive, what they’re doing to our brains, and what we can do to resist their pull (warning: you’ll never look at the apps the same way again)
Ten days’ worth of evidence-backed daily assignments, designed to help you change your habits, create better boundaries, and regain your sense of control
Practical, actionable steps you can take to reduce the time you spend mindlessly scrolling
