We founded Inspirational to create products and services that help families decrease their time on devices and reclaim it together doing healthy activities.
We met with 50 families for in depth conversations about rules and rituals surrounding devices. Our research culminated in the publication of the “Digital Well-Being Playbook: The First 50 Report,” accessible for free when you subscribe to our mailing list.
