  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Less Screen Time
    What did you notice in implementing this challenge? Was it hard to choose other activities over screen time? How did you decide to spend your time?

    All day long I'm surrounded by screens. My work computer, my cell phone, my tv, my tablet - it's really hard to escape them. I'm more aware of it, now, thanks to this challenge. I'm a big reader, but screen time has really gotten in the way of that so it's been nice to put down my phone or turn off the tv and pick up a book or spend quality time with my family instead.
