Program

The statistics

  • Americans habitually look at their smartphones an average of 52 times a day and roughly 80 times per day while on vacation.
  • Neuro-imaging studies have shown that constant internet users experience abnormal changes in brain matter leading to anxiety, loneliness, depression, and sleeplessness.
  • Screen time has shown to put a strain on meaningful human connections.

The solutions

  • New habits can be installed in the brain, by creating brain-grooves thru the power of deep trained attention and persistent good actions.
  • It rests with you whether you will let the divine soldiers of self-control, peace, and harmony rule your mental kingdom.
  • Environment is stronger than will power. Surrounding yourself with positive people and influences strengthens your ability to create positive change.
