Have you ever caught yourself checking your smartphone while you’re behind the wheel - even though you know it’s dangerous? Does your text alert chime make you interrupt a conversation with a person sitting right in front of you?

Our guest today, Dr. Nancy Colier, says that the compulsion to constantly check our devices plays on primal instincts and even lifelong meditators and people who’ve never suffered from addiction issues now find themselves caught in the subtle trap of these miraculous tools we’ve created.

Nancy is a psychotherapist, interfaith minister, author, and veteran meditator. She is the author of Inviting a Monkey to Tea; Discovering Lasting Contentment and her newest book, The Power of Off: The Mindful Way to Stay Sane in a Virtual World. Nancy is also a regular contributor to Psychology Today and The Huffington Post. Visit www.nancycolier.com
