There is something you can do one day a week that has the potential to change your life, and it I s a practice thousands of years old with proven wisdom from the beginning of civilization. In this conversation, Tiffany Shlain shares how starting a Technology Shabbat has transformed and enriched her life.

Tiffany’s new book, 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week, explores how unplugging for 24 hours a week has actually increased her productivity, creativity, presence and connection with her family. Tiffany’s book is also a guide for how to start a Technology break in your life, with research and wisdom to support why this day of rest can be so deeply transformative. 

In our conversation, we discuss why taking a day off allows your brain to process the information and experiences from the week, while creating space for doing things you love. A tech free day also creates the space and time for connecting more deeply with your friends and family. Tiffany is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, speaker and Webby Awards Founder with over 80 awards and distinctions for her films and work.
