National Day of Unplugging

March 3, at sundown join others across the country and “unplug” for 24 hours, for National Day of Unplugging.

Do you have multiple cell phones? Take your iPad to the beach on vacation? Ever find it hard to get through a conversation without posting an update to Facebook? Is your computer always on?

We increasingly miss out on the important moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our noses buried in our phones, chronicling our every move through social media and shielding ourselves from the outside world with the bubble of “silence” that our earphones create.

If you recognize that in yourself – or your friends, families or colleagues— participate in the National Day of Unplugging and start living a different life: connect with the people in your street, neighborhood and city, have an uninterrupted meal or read a book to your child.  Visit the website for more tips and ideas to help your family “unplug!”
