Week 3: RECONNECT

  

WEEK 3: NO MORE ME, IT'S US.

We’ve replaced our voice with our thumbs, our facial expressions with emojis, and our personal reactions are often reduced to a few ‘go-to’ pop-culture memes.

While the wide world of social media and connective technology continues to bring new blessings and possibilities to our lives, it also has frayed bonds and strained our human need for personal relationships.

This week, we will focus on finding new ways and rediscovering old ways to RECONNECT with others.

Weekly Challenge     

  1. Reconnect with five loved ones this week by phone, video chat, or in-person (bonus points if it's been over a year since you've talked to them!)
  2. 150 minutes of movement
