Christina Crook

Christina Crook's book, The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World, has made her leading voice on technology and human flourishing. Through her writing and speaking she reveals how key shifts in our thinking can enable us to draw closer to one another, taking up the good burdens of local work and responsibilities. She writes about the value of focus, making space to create, and the meaning we find in more limited connections. She challenges the Western values of power, control, and success, revealing how wonder, trust, and discipline are central to the experience of being human and the keys to our joy.

Her commentary has appeared in the New York Times, Psychology Today, Women's Health, NPR and the CBC. Her essays and poetry have appeared in UPPERCASE magazine, Utne Reader, the Literary Review of Canada, and Vancouver magazine. She is a TEDx alum and a graduate of the Simon Fraser University School of Communication.

In 2017 she launched Daily JOMO: your daily dose of JOY, SPACE, CONNECTION AND PLAY. Daily JOMO is a playful prompt delivered to your inbox to help you embrace a life with More Joy, Fewer Screens and Better Habits.

Christina is currently completing a writing residency with the Henri Nouwen Society based at the University of Toronto.

She speaks across North America (but would welcome a trip across the ocean. Any ocean.)
