Action in the Spotlight:
ENCOURAGE 2,015 STUDENTS & PARENTS to SIGN the…
UN-INVITE ELECTRONICS to DINNER &
CREATE ELECTRONIC-FREE SLEEP ZONES
…PLEDGE in 2015
Let’s make a pact with our kids to form new habits together that are good for them and for us. Forget “fat-free” — let’s eat electronic-free! Micro-chips aren’t very tasty, and they distract us from digesting dinner conversation vocabulary. Let’s trade our interactive interface, for interacting face to face. Among other things, regular sharers of food AND stories around the dinner table experience significantly lower rates of depression, obesity & drug use.
Pull up a chair and join the pledge signers.
You’ll sleep sooner, more soundly and maybe more safely if you ban electronics from the bedroom as well. Recharge without any cables! We need to unplug, literally and figuratively, to fully recharge. This can boost grades, moods and your overall health. Each sleep mystery scientists unravel proves more fascinating than the last. We knew sleep was essential before we knew why, but seeing just the tip of the ice-berg drives home just how big a deal missing a few winks can be.
Sign a promise to make quality sleep a priority.
(Ironically, you can sign the pledge electronically, or sign a printable pdf.)
