Navigating Distractions and Polarization in the Digital Age

Author Dr. Nate Klemp shares insights on the challenges posed by modern distractions and polarization with host Jason Altmire. In his book, "Open: Living with an Expansive Mind in a Distracted World," Dr. Klemp offers strategies for cultivating a more open and mindful approach to life. He also explores the impact of technology on our attention and mental well-being and outlines practical tools from his "Open Toolkit" to counteract the pull of digital overload. 

Dr. Klemp tells Jason how modern life is causing people to “close” themselves off from discomfort, challenging emotions, or scary thoughts. He also details the science behind what happens in a closed mind and stresses the importance of more intentional habits and strategies when consuming technology and information generally.
