The time has FINALLY arrived.

We are launching our Kickstarter campaign! It is really surreal finally being at the point of launch. So much work has gone into getting here. I have to extend special thanks to three people in particular: my videographer, Michael Incavo, who did an incredible job filming and editing 12+ drafts of the Kickstarter video; Case Harts, who drew up those amazing mockups; and of course Allison Jones, who provided support, encouragement and advice throughout the process. I also want to thank my editor at MMA Mania, Tommy, and Matt Saccaro, who gave valuable feedback to improve the video and presentation. 

 

How do smartphones interfere with a life of happiness?

How do smartphones interfere with a life of happiness?

With the constant preoccupation our smartphones provide, it is harder to find time or mental space to form a coherent sense of spiritual purpose or meaning. In other words, we are thinking less. In fact, there are several studies that show simply having a phone in the room makes us less intelligent. Having the phone present, even if you aren’t consciously thinking about it, draws on attention and drains brainpower. The higher one’s dependence on one’s phone, the worse this effect is.
