How To Unplug Your Family

unplug family


How can you get your fam­ily to unplug for just 24 hours?  And what would you like to do dur­ing that time?

Do you have mul­ti­ple cell phones? Take your ipad to the beach on vaca­tion? Ever find it hard to get through a con­ver­sa­tion with­out post­ing an update to Face­book? Is your com­puter always on?

We increas­ingly miss out on the impor­tant moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our noses buried in our iPhones and BlackBerry’s, chron­i­cling our every move through Face­book and Twit­ter and shield­ing our­selves from the out­side world with the bub­ble of “silence” that our ear­phones create.

If you rec­og­nize that in your­self – or your friends, fam­i­lies or col­leagues— join us for the National Day of Unplug­ging, sign the Unplug pledge and start liv­ing a dif­fer­ent life: con­nect with the peo­ple in your street, neigh­bor­hood and city, have an unin­ter­rupted meal or read a book to your child.

The National Day of Unplug­ging is a 24 hour period – run­ning from sun­down to sun­down – and starts on the first Fri­day in March.
