Celebrated the first week of May, National Screen-Free Week, May 1 through 7, is a weeklong challenge for families, schools, and communities to disconnect from digital entertainment screens. UScellular is encouraging Goldsboro residents to take time to reset their relationship with technology and set aside their entertainment screens, including cell phones and tablets.
To help make it easier and create conversation around the need to stop our addiction with our smartphones, UScellular created the Phones Down for Five challenge. The challenge encourages phone users to choose a time limit that best meets their needs to put down their phone and reconnect with their friends and family.
“National Screen Free Week gives us a chance to focus on alternative activities for families and communities to connect with each other,” said Jeremy Taylor, director of retail sales and operations for UScellular in eastern North Carolina. “We invite the Wayne County community to have a reset moment with technology, the first step in having a healthier relationship moving forward.”
Additionally, UScellular offers the following tips to successfully make the most of National Screen-Free Week.
