GET OFF SCREENS
Skip the gym membership this year and go for a family New Year’s resolution instead. One of the best things you and the kids can do this year is to get off screens. That doesn’t mean you have to toss your smartphone or skip the upgrade. But come up with a plan for spending more time talking, thinking and looking at each other’s faces instead of your own individual screens.
TAKE ON A BIG PROJECT
One way to spend less time on screens is to have something else to work on. Better than that, make it a project you can work on together. Volunteer to build housing for the homeless—or construct your own backyard shed or outdoor retreat. Learn how to tile your bathroom from YouTube videos. Make it long-term, intense and with a big payoff at the end.
