When your phone buzzes or a notification pops up your screen, do you stop what you’re doing to look and respond? Do you have multiple devices constantly competing for your attention at all times? Do you find it hard to sit still for a bit without checking your phone or social media feeds? Have you been looking for ideas to unplug, without having to depend on sheer willpower followed by pure defeat?
If so, you can take the pledge to participate in this year’s National Day of Unplugging, a 24 hour global respite from technology. After taking the pledge, you can finally put all your electronic devices in a 16-digits-password-protected safe and throw it across the Atlantic ocean to finally have an uninterrupted board game night with your loved ones.
A digital break can be extremely helpful for people who feel like they are always on their smartphones, constantly being bombarded with notifications or feel that they are hopelessly addicted to their black screens. If you are part of the 1%, you can take yourself on the unpluggedweekend retreat that promises you a break from it all.
