Ep. 112: WW Dopamine Detoxing

Today’s Worldview Wednesday episode discusses the TikTok trend #dopaminedetox. Time magazine has noted the “moment” dopamine detoxing is having on social media platforms. At the core, the idea is to create better, healthier habits. However, this social media trend also provides great lessons for learning discernment with online media. How can we ourselves and our kids critically think about the content promoted: is it true? What is their motivation for sharing the content? And how can we take what is good and leave behind what is wrong?
