EP 1064B – You Are What You Click: How Being Selective, Positive and Creative Can Transform Your Social Media Experience

Show: (October 5, 2021)

ep-1064b-you-are-what-you-click-how-being-selective-positive-and-creative-can-transform-your-social-media-experienceSocial media can be addictive. For many of us, endless and endless scrolling dominates our lives, often creating a sense of depression, anxiety, and even loneliness. But should we completely unplug? Can’t we use social media for positive things as well?

All of these questions and more are discussed in Dr. Brian Primack's book You Are What You Click.

Social media expert, Brian Primack MD, PhD, makes the realist's argument that we do not need to give up social media, delete all of our online accounts, or discard our phones to live a healthier, happier life. Instead, in You Are What You Click, Primack shows us how what we are consuming online affects our well-being, and he gives us a personalized "tech diet" for enjoying a healthy relationship with social media.

Arming readers with new evidence-based research, this book teaches us why we aren't just feeling more alone and depressed because of our overconsumption of social media, but because we have yet to learn how to use this technology as a tool for inspiration, creativity, and connection.
