I thought I was onto something when I made "unplugging" a regular occurrence in my life until I discovered that there is such a thing as National Unplug Day (March 1st).
Technology sucks the life out of me so every so often I need a break. I take this time to read a book or two, spend some quality time with my dog, friends and family. At the end, I feel so refreshed. The longest I've gone without any contact with technology is 4 days which is extremely long considering my phone goes wherever I go. Also, it's a little bit difficult to keep this blog up and running without a computer or phone.
My next unplug session probably won't happen until after award season, but I made sure to spend any free weekends ahead of award season away from my phone. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone. We're too dependant on our electronic devices causing us to miss out on what's happening right in front of us.
