Following on from one of the most downloaded episodes of all time – Amy’s reflection on social media and why we struggle with it so much – here, we talk to Dr Kristy Goodwin about how to take this a little further, and really disconnect to connect.
In this episode, Amy shares her experience of taking herself and her children completely offline and ‘out bush’ for five days, and the effect it had on both her own wellbeing and her children’s. On return to Sydney, she was so determined to continue this connection, that she wanted to ban devices all together! But then – reality set in again. So, how do we make sure we have plenty of space and offline time to allow true connection as a family?
Here, Dr Goodwin shares the psychological and physical affects our phones have on us, and how we can transform that effect.
Plus, she shares the reality of devices in her home as a mama to two boys. No guilt or overwhelm here, mamas – this is all about balance and understanding.
