National Day of Unplugging March 1/2
From the Workbench....
Take a break, from your gadgets, cell phone or other electronics.
(I think I can hear the sound of crickets...)
What? You're suggesting what? I can't do that...Yes, yes you absolutely can. They even have a day for it to
help us all out---it's the National Day of Unplugging. This year it is from March 1-2 sundown to sundown
(more about National Day of Unplugging below).
Have you, or had someone, nearly bump into you, someone else, or something because they are buried in
their device? It's difficult to concentrate today because there are so many things going on around us and/or
information coming at us. We have anywhere from cell phones ringing, texts beeping, emails chirping,
social media dinging and numerous other notifications chiming. We think about what you're going to eat
later, things we need to do later, or get to later, or what's coming up on tv. Maybe your situation is more like
this; my cell phone, my iPad/tablet, my laptop, and my work computer or other device on all on majority of the
day. Today, it is more of a challenge to keep our mind on something for any length of time. Some of it may
be just "noise". Today with all our gadgets we get increasingly distracted and that the time actually talking &
having an actual conversation with others has somewhat lessened. We're missing out on the good stuff--the
important moments, togetherness, enjoyment, laughter, conversations, just quality time with others,
especially just a little quiet time for our self. Sometimes it's the little things that can mean the most in life.
Do the noteworthy thing, be grateful & enjoy time together with others. Enjoy a little quiet time, read, get
outside and enjoy nature, even if it's short time. Take a break, enjoy. I believe you can, I hope you'll try it too.
Below is some more information, ideas, themes and tools for the National Day of Unplugging. Join us!
National Day of Unplugging
What is it? The National Day of Unplugging is an annual 24-hour period running from sundown to sundown
of observing a digital detox.
Take the pledge to unplug. Do you have multiple cell phones or devices? Do you find it hard to get through
a conversation without being distracted by your device or without posting an update to social media? Is your
computer always on? We can pass hours with our noses buried in devices, or the play by play of our every
move on social media. If you recognized any of this in yourself--or your friends, family, of colleagues--join us
in taking the Unplug Challenge.
Here's some principles to consider from the National Day of Unplugging website:
1. Avoid Technology
2. Connect with Loved Ones (friends & family)
3. Nurture Your Health do something good for yourself, eat a healthy meal
4. Get Outside go to a park, get out in nature, visit a museum
5. Avoid Commerce (meaning avoid using your credit cards when possible)
6. Light Candles
7. Enjoy a nice beverage, e.g. glass of wine, tea, hot cocoa, coffee, mocha, latte or cappuccino
8. Eat Bread (or enjoy a small special treat)
9. Find Silence, a bit of quiet time
10. Give Back donate your time, give to a cause of your choice, volunteer
Have a 'check-in' station at the door, kind of like a coat check. Somewhere where the phones will be out of
arm's reach. Or put them in a sleeve, folded paper that's been decorated (see National Day of Unplugging cell
phone sleeping bag suggestion) or container, make it a hands-on craft activity with kids, family, or friends.
Prepare this ahead of time.
Add a post on your social media site page for the day: "your gone..." gaming, offline, photography, or
walking whatever on your social media page. You can download these 'gone away' message for your
social media page from the National Day of Unplugging site here.
Here's some ideas on possible unplugging themes: Host a unplugging party, play board games, cards,
crafts, get outside for a walk or bike ride, volunteer, cook a meal to share with family and friends together
unplugged, visit a library, museum, host a story slam--emails you wish you never sent, tales of digital
addiction or 'six word memoir' on unplugging.
Download & print your own "I / We unplug to __" poster here. Put it where you can see it.
How about some conversation starters? Download a list of conversation prompts for youth and adults.

Happy Valentine's Day !
