19 mins | Aug 26, 2021

Today's episode from 27th August 2021. Up first this Friday: We're all guilty of being on our phones too much but could quitting make us happier? An addiction expert gives us some tips on how and what benefits it could have for our state of mind. Then shortly after, do you thrive in a 9 to 5? Or do you favour flexibility? We look at whether traditional working patterns are a thing of the past. According to addiction expert Dr Anna Lembke, our smartphones are making us dopamine junkies, with each swipe, like and tweet feeding our habit. Jamie Waters talks to the expert to find out how we can beat our digital dependency. The pandemic gave way to an unofficial remote working experiment during the pandemic, however, many workers do not want to return to a nine to five. Janina Conboye explores why asynchronous work could give employees more freedom and could form part of an attractive flexible working offer. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
