Your Brain On Social Media

The human brain is one of the most complex structures in the world, with so much of its healthy development depending on one thing: connecting to other humans in healthy, nurturing ways. When you think of social media, do you associate it with the words "healthy" and "nurturing"? In this episode, we will explore our behavior on the social media stage and how it plays into the needs of our social brain, and we will ask the questions of: What do we expect from social media and what do we actually get from it, how can we use social media more mindfully and intentionally, and how can we define a clear purpose for it in our lives?
