The Dunes East Hampton’s very own Dr. Nicholas Kardaras has been busy as of late, touring the country in support of his latest book “Glow Kids: How Screen Addiction Is Hijacking Our Kids – and How to Break the Trance.” Learn about digital detox and how it’s affecting younger generations.
Dr. Kardaras’ latest appearance brought him to goop – an online publication for health, fitness, psyche and more – where he engaged in a Q & A session on “screen addiction” and “digital detox.”
Citing the growing problems with technology addictions and increased screen time, Dr. Kardaras touted the benefits of digital detox regimens for both adults and children.
“(Digital detox is) basically unplugging from screens for 4 to 6 weeks (the extreme version also eliminates TV). This allows a person’s adrenal system to re-regulate itself and get back to baseline.”
