The Tech Timeout challenge started by Life insurance provider Foresters is inspiring families to take a daily break from technology. Participating families are encouraged to disconnect from all things electronic for one hour per day, and spend quality time together. Being such a tech involved family – I absolutely love this idea!
Check out the below video. Can you relate? Sadly – most of us can.
Don’t get me wrong. I have no intentions of giving up my electronics! I value my television and movie time. Just as I do the time I spend blogging and catching up with family and friends online. Even though there is nothing I value more than my family, I recolonize how easy it can be to lose that balance.
So we took the pledge!
I think my family will agree that we’re enjoying our “tech timeout” enough to keep it going. Wither we’re playing cards, walking to the park or just sitting on our porch talking about our day, these hours have been time well spent, and extremely rewarding. I don’t see us ever giving that up.
Feel free to encourage your family by clicking on and printing the below pledge sheet.
