This Monday will begin screen-free week. May 4th - 10th is this years screen free week. I actually first learned about screen free week a week or two after it ended in 2013. This national event used to be called "TV Turnoff Week" or "Digital Detox Week."
We are encouraged to turn off our screen media next week and screen media doesn't just mean television. It also refers to items that are much more difficult for some of us to separate from like video games, computers, cell phone, and most difficult for me - my Kindle.
In show of support for this I won't be blogging during this time period and will come back the following Monday posting as usual.
