Less Screen, More Green
THE MINDFUL TECH PLAN IS DIGITAL DETOX MADE FUN
USING THE POWERS OF NATURE, MINDFULNESS AND BEING TRULY CONNECTED
Hooked on too much tech? Do you find yourself mindlessly checking your phone and computer multiple times a day? Or an hour? Do you ever wish you could use your time more productively, reading or connecting with friends in nature instead of glued to digital screens and social media? Are you concerned about children and youth addicted to endless electronic devices?
Kerry Crofton’s new book Less Screen, More Green comes at a pivotal time in our societal ADD and digital addiction.
This practical guide will help you to:
‣ understand why too much tech is harmful for our brains
‣ practice mindfulness and recognize the healing power of nature
‣ find a manageable balance between screentime and greentime,
while minimizing the health risks of wireless “Smart” technology
‣ develop Mindful Tech Plans for families, schools and workplaces
With quotes and contributions from experts around the globe, Less Screen, More Green is the essential toolkit for parents, grandparents and educators who want to show children the value of nature and restore a calmer pace to their own lives in a frenzied digital age.
