Event Description
Is Abandoning Our Screens the Key to Happiness?

Screen time has long been discussed as a factor in mental health: doom scrolling, obsessing over likes, and feeling constantly on call. Some have decided to make a change. The New York Times just profiled a Luddite Club in New York, whose members have switched from smartphones to flip phones, and who sometimes leave their phones totally behind to go read in parks. Would you consider abandoning connectivity for the pursuit of something better? Is becoming anti-tech the key to more happiness? Is there a privilege in being able to drop the screens? Turn off your cell phones with us, as we talk more about mental health discourse and screen time.
