Lonely, Frantic & Exhausted: Staying Human in the Age of Social Media

6/5/2023; 28 minutes

Renowned author and researcher Donna Freitas talks about her research on social media and smartphones and how our devices have changed the way we live, think, relate, and feel about ourselves—and even how we understand what it means to be human. Freitas talks about what it might look like to rest, slow down, focus for the benefit of own happiness and emotional well-being, and for our communities.
