Digital cleanse

Unplugging is making waves this winter.

Screen addiction – especially to cell phones – has become so widespread among teens, that high schools have identified digital cleanse days.

In some schools, teams or clubs have organized unplug challenges. Ceremonies and rituals are developing around the “turn off” times or “lock down”, as teens prepare to live without screens for 24 hour periods.

But will that brief pause prevent attachment from becoming addiction? It’s worth a try.
