what a great idea :) I like the candle light, reading a book or drawing listening to the wind and animals outside. It won't be that hard though, I don't own a computer (i'm at the library, thank you!) and I despise that box containing moving idiots..lol (tv).
Bupa! Awesome idea! I'm so doing this.. Maybe even a little party outside with a bonfire!
i usually am not watching tv or on the comp that much so it was a breeze :-) it was just my phone that was taking all my willpower lol a bonfire sounds good, chad eric josh and i are sitting out side staring at the stars and moon right now :) but shabbat is over so the phone got turned on hence my comment...lol
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.
My goal is to unplug everything...candlelight and quiet sounds blissful to me!
So if I'm in an emergency on that day and need your help desperately, I'm to send a homing pigeon or smoke signals instead?
OFORTHELOVEOFGAWD Melissa! Besides I am far enough away that you probably better send your pigeon a little closer to home...LOLZ
Lololol just messin' with ya, as if you don't get enough guilt trips ;)
What an outstanding idea. Believe I will follow your lead. Thanks....
I am going to do this - anyone want to join me?
yes please Michelle
am with you!
I am excited to start!
I do this all the time.
No one likes this???
Can't believe the thought of "unplugging" is actually making me anxious. I guess that means I really should do this. Here goes nothing!
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.
