I read the term "media diet" the other day. (Is that a thing now?)
I have given some thought (probably not enough) to the foods that I prepare for my family and the ways to make them healthier, but I have never thought to apply the idea of "diet" to non-food items.
So, clearly, the term caught my attention. And, since I am so screen time focused, I figured that I might want to see what my own media diet consists of. After all, I tout all sort of grand ideas for what kind of changes I want to make when it comes to media use, so it would be good to get some sort of baseline, right?
Besides, I am curious as to the kind of example I am setting for my son.
So, for the next week, I am going to try and keep a media diary to see what I consume on my computer, the TV and my phone - both within and outside of my son's radar.
You can play along, too. Just record the following information:
Let's see how we do.
Any guesses as to how you'll fare? Make them in the comments.
