Living in a world where we are connected 24/7 certainly offers pros but definitely doesn’t help the life-long life balance conundrum we face. What if we unplug and we shift from 24/7 to 24/6? Would withdrawal cripple us or would it allow us to reclaim balance in a life of go-go? Tiffany Shlain will open the session to explore how turning off screens one day a week can work wonders on your brain, body, and soul—and why this regular practice of looking up gives you a better chance of seeing the big picture. Following her presentation, a panel of women will share their successes and lessons learned around the role of technology in helping or inhibiting balance and sanity. Attendees will walk away with a mix of easy hacks and scientifically-grounded doable strategies for implementing a 24/6 week while living in a 24/7 world.
