It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. This week let's look at some ways to take care of our mental health this week. ***Sleep- Sleep allows the brain to take new information and strengthen your memory.

Experts recommend parents delay giving kids a smart cell phone for as long as possible. Handing them a smartphone means giving them a lot of responsibility. Implementing a cell phone contract is a good way to manage some of the challenges and risks that can come along with a smartphone. Here is an example of some contract guidelines developed by Justin Patchin, a past outside presenter at UGES. https://cyberbullying.org/technology-use-contract-2014.pdf P.S. Don't forget the SCREEN FREE SATURDAYS and BINGO CHALLENGE!

Day 6- Do you ever wonder how different a day looks for a middle schooler who has technology at their fingertips? Do you ever wonder how addiction to technology occurs at such a young age? The article “Middle School Misfortunes Then And Now, One Teacher’s Take” written by Benjamin Conlon, a veteran teacher, gives us realistic insight into how technology impacts the lives of youth on a daily basis. What we used to leave at the school doors follows our youth home and into the night due to their access to social media. https://www.waituntil8th.org/blog/2018/11/12/middle-school-misfortunes-then-and-now-one-teachers-take

Day 4 Social Media Stressor # 3- FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) This phenomenon is what keeps most on social media. This is the fear of being out of the loop. It keeps you coming back over and over so that you are always connected with others and never left out. It also creates jealousy and FOMO when we see others doing things that we are not part of. FOMO can create a feeling of loneliness and anxiety when we see others having experiences without us. Each time you pick up your phone ask yourself 3 questions before logging into your social media. What For? Why Now? What Else?

Day 3- Social Media Stressor #2 Social Currency--On social media we become the product that is assigned value. Our social currency value is defined by the number of likes, followers, views etc. that we get. We are allowing others to give us value based on how much they like our highlight reels. The idea of social currency can affect our self worth. Take time tonight to tell your children, family and friends how priceless they are to you.

Day 2- Social Media Stressor #1 Highlight Reel: Social Media is becoming known as the highlight reel, which means everyone shares their best moments that they want people to see. We find ourselves comparing our real lives to others' highlight reels. This constant unrealistic comparison can affect our self esteem and self worth. Remind yourself that what you see on social media is someone's highlight reel not the whole story.
