The advice is all over the internet. We know we should get enough sleep, eat right, exercise, connect with friends, volunteer, take a walk. But there’s one thing that seems to be missing from a lot of this happiness advice. Quit spending so much time on social media. Like, right now.

We’ve been MIA since school has started, with only a few updates via Instagram. Sorry about that! I swear that we’ve been busy, I haven’t been just sleeping in while the kids are in school.
