Be Present: Why It’s Time to Control Your Digital Habit
Data has confirmed that in 2022 users in the UK spent an average of four hours and 14 minutes on their mobile devices, a significant increase from 2020’s average of 3.7 hours. In his new book, Be Present, Gabriel Pitt uses his wealth of experience to help businesses and individuals to navigate our tech-dominated world and unlock their full potential.
Certified digital wellness expert Pitt brings into full view the negative impacts of our reliance on digital technology, whilst sharing his masterplan for reconnecting with the world.
If you feel absent and present at the same time, scroll mindlessly for hours at a stretch, spend precious time watching other people’s lives, and have children who spend more time using their tablet than they do playing outside with their peers, you may ask, do things really have to be this way?
In Be Present: Why It’s Time to Control Your Digital Habits, Gabriel Pitt emphatically shows that they don’t.
Diving deep into the evolution of digital technologies, it reveals how, to make sure we can’t put our smartphones down, tech companies’ devices and services hack basic human physiological and psychological features such as the reward system and our need for social approval. Just as importantly, it sets out the plethora of negative impacts that this hacking is having on us, from insomnia and anxiety to an inability to connect with loved ones and lower productivity at work.
What if, in the end, a truly rich life in the modern world came from taking back control of digital technology instead of letting it control us.
This thoroughly compelling read contains exclusive music and sounds to accompany your reading, and guides you through getting the basics right in order to reinstate all that we cherish at the centre of our lives.
