I recently read a post by Kimba over at “A soft place to land.” She talked about how she sometimes struggles with keeping her focus on her family and those she loves, when she gets caught up in technology. And I can relate to much of what she says. It’s so tempting to check out how everyone is on facebook, to see who is twittering, or posting on myspace.
So I’m taking the “unplug” challenge, along with Kimba and many of her readers. You can do it too! Friday, March 27th is Unplug Friday! You can can “unplug” from as much, or as little as you want on THIS FRIDAY. Then if you want, you can blog about your experience on Monday. You can “unplug” from a computer, or television, or your cell phone- whatever.
I think for me the challenge is going to be to abstain from all things computer related, ALL day! No checking e-mail, no Internet surfing, no reading facebook or myspace! Nada. Zilch. I’m pretty sure being cut off from the computer is going to drive me insane! But I think it will be a good way to hit the reset button on my priorities. And with my extra time I plan to spring clean, and get done a few odds and ends I’ve been putting off. Perhaps I’ll finally clean out the fridge???
If anyone else is participating in this challenge I’d love to know what you plan to do, and how it goes! Click the button below to learn more!
