What does self-care have to do with bringing balance into our screen-filled lives? As it turns out, quite a lot! When we embrace the ethics of caring lovingly for ourselves, our relationship to the use of devices naturally shifts to what supports and gives balance to our lives.
Give yourself the gift of our September Action Network Live! online event, designed for parents, educators, and anyone who has shouldered the stress of supporting children during the pandemic. Psychologist and educator Susan McNamara will help us preserve self-care in uncertain times. During this experiential hour, we will explore simple practices and common sense perspectives that not only help us to decide the if’s and when’s around how we use tech, but that ultimately bring us into relationship with what matters most to us.
