Thank you Tech Timeout for sponsoring today’s discussion.
I was given a challenge. The Tech Timeout™ challenge. From Friday September 6th through Sunday September 8th I signed up to take one hour away from technology per day. That sounds easy right? I thought it did. But, I am so connected to my laptop and iPhone that even one hour per day had to be intentional on my part. I have already learned by experience that parenting, Christian living and family time all needs to be intentional. Carving out the time for these very important things means stepping back from the clutter of life and putting what is most important first.
But… I will be the first to admit that I am addicted to my Gmail, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and now I just started getting into Polyvore (as if I need something else). This Tech Timeout™ enabled me to take some much needed planned time away from all the technology and be present.
WHAT is Tech Timeout™?
The Tech Timeout challenge started by Foresters encourages families to take a daily break from technology. Participating families are encouraged to disconnect from all things electronic with the goal of helping spouses, parents and children build stronger bonds, communicate more personally and get more involved in each other’s lives.
TAKE ACTION. TAKE PART IN A Tech Timeout™.
Won’t you pledge to take a Tech Timeout™ for at least an hour a day?
