Daily Digital Detox

Have you ever had a tech overload like Olive?

You sit down to check your email for a couple minutes. Next thing you know, it’s been hours. Your stomach’s growling and your eyes have trouble focusing.

We all fall into technology holes sometimes.

Balance is the name of the game.

For the next week, try this simple daily digital detox to help you on your path to technology balance:

Step 1: Put your devices on silent.

Step 2: Take five deep breaths with your eyes closed. 

Step 3: Roll your neck around three times to the right, then left. 

Step 4: Name one thing you are grateful for at that moment, and say, “Thank you.” 

Step 5: Stand up and give your full body a shake. Bounce a little and move each limb. 

Step 6: Do a quick self check-in. How are you feeling?

If that feels easy, try it more than once a day!

For kidsstepping away from technology can be even more challenging. Just like it is for our puppet friends from planet Digitopolis. Olive is here to help kids of all ages learn how to step away from the device.
