Learn about Digital Wellness
What exactly is digital wellness?
Digital Wellness Day is a chance to take a more intentional approach to your digital media consumption by stepping back from it and focusing more on the people and the world around you.
How do we practice digital wellness?
There are many ways to approach digital wellness. Follow through this week of activities and read the resources to learn how to create balance for your family by setting up a media plan and establishing structure around media use on Tuesday. On Wednesday, look into how to keep your child safe online and how you can support internet safety. Thursday is a time to reflect on how device use affects mental health. And Friday is a chance to celebrate with your family or friends by enjoying some one-on-one time through a shared activity. Use this week as a first step toward digital wellness for your family and please come back and visit this week any time you feel your family needs a digital reboot.
