Treating Internet Addiction Online

Did you know that, on average (internationally), adults spend about three hours daily on the Internet? That could equate to a part-time job! Spending this much time online can lead to what David Levy calls the “Popcorn Brain.” According to Levy, an “online life” retrains the brain to speed up the pace. Our “offline real life” takes on a much slower pace. We commonly perceive the slower pace as uninteresting or boring, so we enter a new cycle of looking for new and exciting stimuli.
