Are you increasingly distracted, demotivated and unable to focus on simple tasks?

There’s a good chance your smartphone is to blame. In the always-on age of notifications, emails and the news cycle, it’s easy to waste the majority of our days mindlessly scrolling.

Unpacking the latest scientific research on the brain, he explains knowledge to cure your smartphone addiction and foster deep, single-task focus.
