Technology can enhance our lives or it can detract from our good health and well-being. The wise use of the tools of technology, gadgets, cognitive enhancers and supplements, may help us to have more peace, love and joy in our lives, supporting us to create a better and more sustainable world. Or, technology can become “gadgets of mass distraction." Here we look at some criteria that can help us discern which of these will enhance our lives and which we should avoid. Robinson makes a distinction between technologies that train you and those that are more addictive. For example, “Video games are very addictive, but there are now some video games and virtual reality games that actually train you to get over fears or train you to get over depression and they seem to be very effective at doing that.” Robinson’s advice is to use the technology that actually opens our heart, that makes us feel peaceful, and connects us more deeply with each other. Here he gives us some reviews on what he has found, for himself, that elevates his well-being. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
