Tapping into daydreaming

Constant connectivity and endless schedules often fill our lives these days. But what price are we paying for our fixation on screens and busyness? In the cover story of the latest issue of The University of British Columbia Magazine, UBC psychology professor Dr. Kalina Christoff illuminates the value of taking time out to simply allow our minds to wander. Attend this webinar to hear more from this expert and pose your own questions to learn how unplugging from everything outside of us and turning our attention inwards can build healthier brains and benefit our overall wellbeing.
