Here’s today’s Mindfulness Monday Moment:  Social Media can be a good thing, but it can also be a large distraction from noticing what is going around you. To try and decrease your screen time, move the apps you use most frequently to a different page or change their locations on your phone. See if you have less screen time this week and notice what you spend more of your time doing instead of scrolling on your phone.
