Needham Youth Services presents…
It is so easy to get caught up in electronics --- TV, computers, Internet, X-Box, and Wii are fun, entertaining, and a nice way to relax. However, it can become a problem when you find yourself spending 2, 4, 6 or even 8 hours a day plugged in…and little time is devoted to interacting with family and friends or simply engaging in quiet activities such as reading or walking.
Electronics are a wonderful part of life --- we learn, communicate, and access information from electric powered devices; we watch TV or surf the Internet as a way to relax and to relieve the stress of daily life. Unfortunately being so “plugged in” can isolate us from other people. Instead of interacting with family and friends, we all too often become passive voyeurs.
Needham Unplugged is a month long awareness campaign in March to remind Needham families and residents to “unplug their electronics” and “plug into” each other. It is a reminder that there is more to life than what is on the other side of a plug. During the month of March watch for announcements about activities that do NOT require electricity and that emphasize person-to-person interaction and health.
