Announcing Eyes UP LW! A Digital Wellness Awareness Campaign

We all are dependent on our technology now for so much of our daily lives. But, when is our use of tech helpful and when is it becoming a problem. Our PTSA, in coordination with LWHS, is launching a campaign to help all of us find balance in a digital world and learn strategies to keep us on track.

What: In coordination with National Day of Unplugging, Eyes UP, LW! is our local awareness campaign that promotes increased knowledge around digital wellbeing and a challenge to reduce our technology or social media consumption culminating with a 24 hour respite. Observed the first weekend in March, this movement is intended to inspire healthy life/tech balance.

Mission: Increase awareness of technology use and resulting emotional wellbeing and create a movement of collective presence to illuminate our relationship with technology and pledge to elevate personal connections and whatever lights up your life!

Activities:

  • Weekly Tech Tip Tuesday messages and Wednesday Digital Wellness call to action. Follow us on Insta @lwhsptsa and Facebook and find our weekly tips on this page.
  • Join our Chapter Club of book Parenting in the Screen Age to discuss ways to help us navigate screen time challenges with our teens. Sign Up Here
  • Pledge to try some of the highlighted tips/ideas and encourage your students to participate too!
  • Mark your calendar for Friday/Saturday March 5th- 6th (sun down to sun down) to take part in the 24 hour respite (or at least reduce your use!)
