How do real life connections influence your brain health and longevity?

The rise of algorithms has had a significant impact on our overall brain health and mental well-being. They work to direct your attention online and can disrupt how you interact with people, eventually interfering with how you learn, communicate, and engage with others. This makes it difficult to maintain a healthy balance between being online and fostering in-person connections.

To go further on this topic, I’m excited to have Colleen and Jason Wachob on our show today. They are the founders and co-CEO’s of mindbodygreen, an independent media brand dedicated to your well-being. They’re also the authors of the brand-new book, The Joy of Well-Being: A Practical Guide to a Happy, Healthy, and Long Life.

Technology can make your life easier in many ways. But it can also have a downside. The more it advances, the more tempting it can be to rely on algorithms to think for you. If you’re looking for a way to sort through the polarizing noise online and find information on nutrition and wellness to share with the people you love, this episode is for you.
