In our Part 1 interview, Robert and I discussed the effects of what technology is doing to affect our lives, interfere with being present, mindful and so much more. Since we discussed a few of the negative aspects of tech, we decided to talk more about the positive aspects to how technology can influence our lives for the very same thing it is doing to interfere with it.
Robert will discuss apps, ideas, concepts to help improve your overall life and share simple, basic techniques to help you say in a mindful place. I truly enjoyed this episode and received many great ideas that I have implemented in my life which has made a big impact.
