In episode 68, Marygrace Sexton, Natalie Sexton & Bethany Baker join us to talk about their organization: A-GAP. This nonprofit organization hosts events called reprieves, where people learn to recalibrate their relationships with technology in both their work lives and personal lives.
Throughout our conversation, the A-GAP team shares their origin story and all about how they have dedicated their lives and careers to helping young adults reconnect with themselves, loved ones, and the world around them. The three of them share various tips for changing your own technology habits, how to inspire your family to change their habits, and why living a life with boundaries around technology ultimately leads to a life of success and fulfillment.
