Unplug, for your own sake

Parents don’t want guilt.  We know that we spend a lot of time on our phones, especially in front of our kids.  

Let’s face it, when most of our lives are legitimately embedded in our phones, its hard to put it away.   If you are anything like me, you are scrolling through your social media updates or e-mail, and maybe even playing a round of candy crush. The smartphone has become the greatest distraction in history and with it has brought health issues such as urgency addiction.  

So what Can be done about it?  Start small…become aware…start by turning your phone on silent during breakfast, or leave it in your purse, or better yet leave it in your car.   

Your kids will appreciate the attention you are giving them. You’ll be a better role model for getting them off their consoles and devices.  Who knows you may start feeling better yourself without the constant temptation of your phone.
