Episode 117: The Effects of Doom Scrolling

Listen to Episode 117 HERE

We do NOT have the capacity to consume the amount of content we are consuming…

We are not designed to continue to consume content at the rate that we are.

This week, I get into DOOMSCROLLING - a problem that we ALL have.

We have been holding ANGER in higher regards than EMPATHY because we are only built for so much trauma gazing…..

It can affect us both mentally AND physically.

If you want to BE a more empathetic, compassionate HUMAN, this episode is for you….
