Study Up For 'Think': Do Your Habits Own You?
Go ahead, close your Facebook window. Keep it closed all day at work. Can you?
Today on 'Think' at 1 p.m., host Krys Boyd talks to psychologist and blogger Jeremy Dean, author of the new book Making Habits, Breaking Habits: Why We Do Things, Why We Don't, and How to Make Any Change Stick.
Dean has written a series of pieces for Psychology Today about the habits that plague us. In an inventory of Facebook’s addictive power, he asks six questions that measure how out-of-control your use of the site actually is. Some people’s lives have been ruined by an addiction to the Internet, like the woman in this piece who lost her waitressing job because she dashed out to check Facebook.
Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on KERA 90.1 or stream the show at kera.org.
