Phone Detox – Dr. Kirin Fiona Hilliar

06 June 2018: Are we happier not using smartphones? Have you ever done a phone detox or know someone who’s done one?

Television producer and reality TV show judge Simon Cowell hasn’t used his mobile phone in almost a year — and he says it’s made him happier. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Cowell said he used to get irritated when he had a meeting, and everyone was their phone. Since he’s given up his addictive phone habits, he noticed he’s been more focused on his immediate surroundings.

Cowell is one of the latest people to draw attention to unplugging from cell phones as a way to improve mood, health and cut down on distractions.
We are joined by Dr. Kirin Fiona Hilliar from LifeWorks. She’s a Psychologist from Australia with industry experience in Forensic, Clinical and Organizational Psychology. She specialises in dealing with individuals dealing with addiction – including excessive online gaming.
