  • Try to turn the TV off while eating a meal together to avoid any distractions.

  • If your family finds it hard to disconnect from digital media, try putting your laptop, smartphone and other devices in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight for a set period of time.

  • When you stay connected to the people and world around you, you'll be more likely to be able to deal with life's inevitable ups and downs.
