Creating a home base, or technology station, to organize my family's technology is helping to draw some ground rules in my home: all devices to home base at night to charge, power down devices, or even just disable WiFi and Bluetooth for the night.
Below is an example of a technology charging station that is available on Amazon. I keep it in our kitchen pantry (a closet would be good too).
Technology has changed our lives dramatically in recent decades. While this has brought countless benefits, developing a balanced relationship with our digital devices and the digital world wil help our physical, mental, and emotional wellness. One easy tip is to establish a home base for your home's wireless devices and a nightly routine to power them down. Another simple challenge is to start with placing your wireless devices to this home base during meal times. Take the time you need to establish this routine. It may be a lifelong habit to reinforce. But it can open you and your loved ones to more fulfilling connection, contentment, restoration, peace, and better sleep!
If you're ready for another simple tweak, join my next #AirplaneModeChallenge. It is a FREE 7-night challenge to experiment with whether you will sleep better if you turn your cell phone to airplane mode, assuming you keep it in your bedroom and don't turn it off.

Each night, over 7 nights, you’ll receive an email to remind you to turn your phone to airplane mode before you sleep to experiment with whether you sleep better. 😴 .

Each month, we will "meditate" on a body part or system. The goal is to connect with our body, senses, and symptoms to rely on this curiosity and "listening" as guidance for a gentle, detox journey.
