Podcast – Addressing Our Social Media Addiction

There are all different types of addiction, such as substance and behavioral. But today, I focus, specifically, on social media addiction. I’ll cover many aspects of this all-too-common and debilitating issue — from how it affects us to what we should be doing about it. As part of the solution, I invite you to participate in my new challenge, “The Social Media Habit Refresh.”


You’ll find out:

  • The definition of addiction per ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine)
  • The idea of becoming a Social Media Minimalist
  • The books that changed and impacted my views on screen time and social media
  • What is MED (per, Tim Ferriss)
  • What most studies show about the time spent on social media
  • Why more of a good thing isn’t necessarily a good thing
  • What’s really going on when you don’t feel like there are enough hours in the day
  • What is solitude deprivation
  • My personal social media refresh
  • The public declaration I’m asking you to do
  • What are low quality / low return activities and why you must schedule them
  • Why / how I’m scheduling my time on social
  • My current season (and why it’s similar to when my kids were small)
