The Holiday Fix Up’s Jana Kramer Talks Being Present In The Social Media Age

How long has it been since you looked at your phone? Was your screen time up 20% last week, too? With the holidays upon us, it’s a great time to be intentional with our time and present with those around us. Jana Kramer agrees, and has shared what filming Lifetime’s The Holiday Fix Up taught her about being present in the social media age.

The Holiday Fix Up is part of the It’s A Wonderful Lifetime holiday movie lineup and stars Jana Kramer and Ryan McPartlin as exes who reunite for a renovation project. Kramer’s character, Sam, is a well-known interior designer who’s been challenged by her boss to use social media to let her fans see more of her sensitive side. I recently participated in a press conference in support of It’s A Wonderful Lifetime and asked Kramer, who also serves as an Executive Producer on the film, how this social media angle came about. Here’s what she said: 

I think what I learned…actually, yes, we showed how it can bring people together, but, for me, personally, what I took away from the movie the most is actually about putting the phone down… where it’s back in the day when we didn’t have the cell phones and we were able to just disconnect and be in a room together and not be glued to Instagram or the phone. And that’s what I took away from it the most – it is just having that distraction away to really just be present with the people in front of me. So that’s something that I would like to lean more into.
