It’s safe to say that most of us spend way too much time with digital devices. We’re constantly connected to our phones, laptops, tablets, and TVs, and sometimes, it’s just too much. Too much screen time can cause problems with sleep, decreased productivity, and headaches. If you’re looking to decrease your screen time, here are five creative activities to try.

Do Crafts

Keep your hands busy with painting, sketching, crocheting, knitting, or friendship bracelets. Craft projects are really meditative and they’re a great way to slow down.

Write Letters

There’s nothing like a handwritten letter and unfortunately, it’s a dying art. You don’t need an occasion to make a card, you can always do a “just because” or “thinking of you” card.

Home Improvement Projects

Use your time to tackle the home improvement projects you’ve been meaning to get around to. Oil your wood furniture, hang pictures, start an herb garden—we bet there are tons of things around your home that could use some improvements.

Read Coffee Table Books

Have you taken the time to look at your coffee table books? While these may look pretty on your table, you can find inspiration and flip through nice photos.

Clean Your Closet

Get ready for summer by cleaning out your closet. Move summery pieces to the front of your closet and winter pieces to the back.
