As our economy moves further and further into the digital abyss, we find ourselves embedded into our phones, screens and watches. Not much time for anything else; got to keep up with what is happening.

Well, what is happening is that there is an unhealthy loss of physical and actual social interaction, and this is creating negative residuals for all of us, especially our kids. Screen mania is resulting in:

Weight problems
Sleep problems
Reading fewer books
Poor self-image and body image issues
Not enough outdoor or physical activity
Mood problems
Lower grades in school
Less time with family and friends
Less time learning other ways to relax and have fun
