In this entertaining and insightful talk, TEDx and Mobile World Congress 2019 keynote speaker, Dr. Anastasia Dedyukhina explores how the internet is changing our brain. Founder of London-based digital wellness company Consciously Digital, Huffington Post blogger, and best-selling author of ‘Homo Distractus’, Dr. Dedyukhina is an international thought leader in digital wellness.

Quoting the latest neuroscience research, she explains why our devices are so irresistible, how digital distractions prevent us from good decision making and innovative thinking, and lastly provides practical tips on how to coach your brain to stay focused in the age of digital distractions.

Do you ever check your email or social media for just one second, and then two hours later find yourself mindlessly clicking on yet another cat video? How about reading something online, and then immediately forgetting what it was about? You are not alone.

Our brain is undergoing a massive transformation as a result of internet penetration. As we outsource our memory to devices we become less and less able to concentrate on one thing for an extended period of time: when was the last time you read a book without getting distracted? The real cost of allowing your gadgets to dictate your agenda and behavior is your depleted ability to make decisions, stay focused, think clearly and creatively, sleep well, and ultimately, manage your own free time and choices. In this talk, you will learn how to take back control of your time and attention without getting rid of your tech.
