It is on my very plugged in son's bithday who is getting Dr Dre headphones and a new computer for this birthday but I will do it for sure!
Actually he defriended me ha ha!
Maddie/Sophie don't tell him!
Why am I having a conversation with myself
Don't worry Jude you can plead insanity due ti post viral fatigue x
Absolutely, Dr didn't give me anything this afternoon, just said it's post-viral - how are you feeling, you worried me when you said you were off the wine especially on a Friday. I've managed a small merlot!
Oh worry not I have a large chilled Pinot in my hand now xx
Oh do it is Friday night. Diid you like my Cafod link?
Loved it, but what day is it on, cos I will take part for Cafod, good cause
Well let's make it a Friday at QVC I'll make a poster!
Maureen O'Shea Sounds good to me
I'll be unplugging tonight -- see you on Sunday!
ha - no help here with my kids - they'll be with their father for the weekend (I'll have to schedule a make up weekend)
I'm BACK! -- it was a fabulous day -- not fully unplugged, but there was no computer at all, no apps, no ipad, ipod, iphone... I felt a difference and will definitely do it again (like monthly -- not waiting another year to unplug!)
let me know when the next one is...i didn't know!
I think its an anual thing - but it was really liberating for me and I think I'll make it a more regular event for our family!
Let's do this!
I think this is a great idea! We'll see..
it is good to have a big RESET now and again. We need to tune out everything else and get in touch with ourselves.
I'm all fr this. We humanss spend far too much time on the internet, and with all our tech toys. Some I know spend all day on FB. Sad huh?
The days I get caught up in FB make me all the more ready to unplug...tho I can help great causes, when it gets to just frittering time away...then I miss out on the great area I live in, friends, the horses and dogs and cats and working in the yard...so I'm all for this..tho I've done it on my own in the past..and it is time to do it again, so Unplug Day has come along to give me that nudge. :)
How many of us can turn off the computer and cell phone for 24 hours? I'm going to give it a try. I hope you will join in and break the electronic chain. Give books and real live conversation a try!
I know Di. I do the same thing quite often. I turn the phone off, tune the stereo to my favorite New Age channel, grab a book or a broom and spend the day listening to relaxing music and getting back to what's important.
What A wonderful idea! ;-)
Jody Richards Its didn't, honestly I spaced it until Saturday Morning... I am going to try to give it a break on a regular basis though!
Want it. Need it. Can I do it?
you wouldnt even notice!
Join me in a 24-hour digital timeout. You can do it!
National Day of Unplugging is blowing up! http://mashable.com/2012/03/22/national-day-of-unplugging/
