CIN #27: Don't Be A Slave To Your Device
In this week's episode, I share strategies that I use to set boundaries with my technology use. It's so easy to get sucked into the tech life constantly feeling like we have to check in because it's connected to pretty much any and everything, but sometimes it can do more harm than good.  Check out this episode for some pointers. The app that I share about in this episode is Stay Focused. It can be found in the google play store. I'm not sure if this applies to iPhones. (nope I'm not getting paid to share) Shoot me an email. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this episode :)  e-mail iG: custommadeinnewyork Website:
