Details

In this entertaining and insightful talk TEDx [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNQujCwCu88] speaker, Huffington Post blogger, author of Homo Distractus [http://www.consciously-digital.com/book] and founder of life tech balance consultancy Consciously Digital [http://www.consciously-digital.com/] Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina explores, how internet is changing our brain. Quoting the latest NEUROSCIENCE research, she explains how digital distractions are preventing us from good decision making and innovative thinking, and will give practical tips on how to coach your brain to stay focused in the age of digital distractions.

YOUR BRAIN ONLINE: HOW TO STAY PRODUCTIVE AND FOCUSED IN THE AGE OF DISTRACTION

Does it happen to you to go check your email or social media just for a second, and then two hours later find yourself mindlessly clicking on yet another cat video? How about reading something online, and then immediately forgetting what it was about? You are not alone.

Our brain is undergoing a massive transformation as a result of internet penetration. We are less and less able to concentrate on something without an interruption, and don’t try to remember things anymore, as we can google them at any point. The real cost of allowing your gadgets to dictate your agenda and behaviour is your depleted ability to take decisions, stay focused, think clearly and creatively, sleep well, and ultimately, manage your own free time and choices. In this talk, you will learn how to take back control of your time and attention without getting rid of your tech.
