Benefits of daydreaming or zoning out | Hanging Up series

Standard

Last year when I started writing about ditching my smartphone habit, I mentioned the Bored & Brilliant Project series from New Tech City and Manoush Zomorodi’s podcast Note to Self.  The project raises awareness on smartphone use and presents challenges to help evaluate your relationship with your phone.

Today’s share is to a TED Talk that Manoush subsequently presented on the same subject.

Even though I have been on this endeavor for over a year now, it still amazes me how much work it has been to make this change (even just simple things like “checking things” all the time – the weather, facts, what movie was this guy in, how much is this on Amazon, etc.).

And now for your viewing pleasure, here is Manoush and her TED Talk!
