Navigating the world of mobile devices and ubiquitous social media can be a challenge.

Understanding the psychology of technology in relation to our personal needs is crucial to solving this universal problem.
Psychological wellbeing and excellence in the workplace

Alignment: a different perspective on work/life balance
There is no such thing as a work/life balance. We spend too much time in the workplace to have to wait until we get home to find balance. Rather, we can think about how the workplace as a place for a particular kind of self-expression with a particular aim in mind. By creating emotionally and psychologically attuned practices at work, we can find that work more satisfying, productive, and nourishing.
