Are the world’s most successful people born smarter than everyone else? That simple question led me on a journey to change the lives of millions.
Why millions? Because without even knowing it, we’re putting our brains in danger. An eye-opening study in Seoul, Korea, as well as research at UCLA, revealed some alarming information about our brain development in a mobile universe. Did you know that people are spending an average of 7 hours a day attached to their iPads, smartphones, computers, and gaming consoles?
The impact: “brain damage” like we’ve never seen before. “Digital Dementia,” a term coined by top German neuroscientist Manfred Spitzer, describes how our reliance on technology is playing a role in a de-evolution of the mind. Our memories are becoming worse. Or focus is dwindling. Anxiety and stress are rising. And there are scary similarities in brain patterns that show how our reliance on technology is resulting in cognitive breakdowns that mirror those seen in people with head injuries or psychiatric illness.
Relying on technology to replace your memory can cause breakdowns in brain performance on all levels. And it’s the simplest things we stop learning that have the biggest impact. While many people grew up memorizing phone numbers and other key information, we now increasingly rely on phones, apps, and tools.
This over-reliance on technology is creating a brain imbalance. While your left side of the brain—the one that deals with fact-finding—can still develop, your right side, which typically manages your intuitive, emotional, and imaginative potential, becomes under-developed.
The result? You struggle to focus and memorize information. Your learning process is slowed. And possibly worst of all, these brain deficits can trigger more stress, anxiety, and mental disease—such as depression—which continues to increase in frequency.
