What I Learned from 10 Years of Digital Detox | Josh Misner | TEDxCoeurdalene technology detox



The average American currently spends nearly 7 hours a day staring at screens. Communication professor Josh Misner was one of those people until a shopping incident brought awareness about the harm screen addiction brings to relationships. In this eye-opening talk, he shares the most important lessons learned from a decade of Screen Free Saturdays. As an NIC alumnus, Josh is proud to work at the North Idaho College campus in Communication since 2008. Josh has spent a good portion of his life on college campuses. Along the way, he has earned a BA, MA, and PhD in communication and leadership studies. Currently, Josh’s area of focus is centered in how mindful presence impacts interpersonal relationships.

In addition to being an educator, Josh also loves writing to help others, and he feels fortunate to have his work on mindfulness published in book, textbook, and article formats all over the world.

At home, Josh is proud of his wonderful and supportive family. He and his family enjoy long road trips, exploring abandoned places, attending concerts, and seeing the world! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at .

  1. so no books, magazines or hobbies? Just say that you want to dedicate 24 hours to your family….while I agree that screens are changing our free time and habits…I don't agree that screens are killing family time on their own….humans have said the same thing about learning to read, the radio and the TV….

  2. This is interesting because it touches on a broader topic that I am very interested in, but do not see anyone addressing directly. That topic is, humans and extremes. Meaning, humans seem to struggle with moderation in almost all aspects of life. We do one thing to the extreme, realize it's not good, so we over correct and go the opposite extreme. Then we realize that's not the answer, and rinse and repeat. But we fail to seem to realize that it's the extremities we take things to that are harmful, not the things themselves. Moderation in everything is closer to the answer than one extreme over another. It's almost as if most humans are addicts/have that addiction drive, it's just not narcotic drugs that the majority become addicted to. But it can be even simpler than that. Take love and hate. Anyways, as always, thanks for the share Ted!
