Why You Need to Find Connection in the Modern World

We’re joined by Johann Hari, a writer and journalist, who travelled all over the world to interview and learn from the leading scientists investigating why we’re losing focus to what matters and what the impact of chronic distraction is, and also to those developing the solutions.
We discuss:

Why we’re living in an attention crisis and why willpower isn’t the problem

Why we need to stop task switching

The impact of being chronically distracted on our brain power

Why sleep and diet are critical components of reclaiming focus

Why restoring childhood is so important

The individual and collective changes for solving our attention crisis

How to get into a flow state to find deep focus

Why stress undermines our ability to focus
