About this title:

Synopsis: Feeling rushed, out of control, and overwhelmed? Feeling like you can't keep up ... and can't stop?It's not just you.From the need to be constantly connected and the changing definition of "work hours" to unrealistic expectations of instant gratification, our bodies and brains are being harmed by habits that, as with any kind of addiction, promise short-term satisfaction while doing long-term damage.As a psychologist and addiction expert who practices in Silicon Valley, Stephanie Brown sees firsthand the impact of ever-faster technology and the culture it has spawned. She knows it's affecting us mentally, physically, and spiritually. Dr. Brown offers a step-by-step plan for breaking out of the speed trap. With practical guidelines, she shows us how to ease up on the gas pedal and reconnect with ourselves, learning to accept--and value--our limitations as human beings, reduce our stress levels, and free ourselves from our counterproductive obsession with speed. In this groundbreaking audiobook, she explores how our beliefs and behaviors are being shaped by the seemingly limitless new world we've entered in recent years--and why faster doesn't always equal better.
