Johann is a writer and journalist and has written for the New York Times, Le Monde, the Guardian and other newspapers. 

 

His TED talks have been viewed over 70 million times, and his work has been praised by a broad range of people, from Oprah to Noam Chomsky to Joe Rogan. His previous books, Lost Connections and Chasing the Scream, are international bestsellers. 

 

This is Johann’s second appearance on the podcast.  In June 2020, we recorded episode 281 titled Johann Hari on Lost Connections and Uncovering The Real Causes of Depression and Anxiety (And The Unexpected Solutions) where we dived deep into his incredible book lost connections. 

 

That was and still is one of my favourite ever podcast episodes and today we  I’m looking do a deep dive into his new book Stolen Focus Why You Can’t Pay Attention in today’s episode.  

 

This is a fascinating conversation with a gifted story teller and even nicer person. Enjoy. 

 

Some of the things we talked about in today’s podcast: 

 

  •     The reason for writing the new book – Elvis, Graceland and his nephew 
  •     Smoking a splif vs being distracted – how being distracted is twice as detrimental as smoking weed
  •     Why the pre commitment strategy can work for phones addiction (and your favorite junk food)
  •     Flow states and the impact on your mental health 
  •     The connection between attention and anxiety 
  •     The impact of sleep on attention and mood
  •     Why social media makes you angry and how to have a better relationship with it.
  •     And much more.
