A moment. With my phone no less, which according to research shared by doreen dodgen-magee on the podcast, “can stimulate the release of oxytocin (’the cuddle hormone’), thus initiating feelings similar to love… Our physiological responses to devices suggest an emotional connection to them not unlike what we experience as physiological responses to connections between humans.”
Surprising? Perplexing? What do we do with this? For insight, encouragement and practical tools and interventions, you can listen to doreen’s wisdom, compassion and extensive research shared on how we can navigate this complex landscape as parents, nurturers of children and adults, responsibly and intentionally. May you benefit. Share in the comments what you gain and check out doreen dodgen-magee’s meaningful work and book, Deviced! Thanks for listening.
