Hina Talib, an adolescent medicine specialist at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, offers tips to help your household’s digital wellness practice:

  • Eliminate phones from tables at mealtime and bedrooms overnight. (You might need to buy an alarm clock.)
  • Try screen-free Saturday mornings or a daily “no-power” hour, and use that for family time instead.
  • Challenge each other to a one-day phone fast. The first person to lose does everyone’s laundry for a week.

Remote life can leave both kids and adults with screen fatigue and craving human connection.
