Have you heard the news? . . . This week is Screen Free Week!
This week is the perfect excuse to close down the electronics in your house – the TV, tablets, computers, and smart phones – and enjoy the world without so much beeping, buzzing, and interrupting.
If going completely screen free is overwhelming, try going partially screen free during specific hours of the day. Or, schedule some outings to get your kids out of the house and away from all the electronic stimulation.
And, don’t expect to hear much from me. While I have obligations (like I suspect many of you do) that make a completely screen free week personally not possible, I am using this week as an excuse to take a break, focus more on the kids, and take time to just enjoy life.
