I made a pledge on techtimeout.com to take a Tech Timeout for an hour every day. I think it’s important to spend time doing other things besides being online all of the time. You would not believe what all I’ve accomplished in that daily timeout hour!
The first day I raked. I can’t remember the last time I raked (well now I can but I mean before my tech timeout). To date, not only have I gotten back into raking the leaves that are falling as I type, I’ve finally found the bottom of my laundry basket. Who knew that laundry baskets have a bottom? I now have a super clean and organized home office. Saturday night we vowed to leave the cell phones off while we enjoyed a cozy and relaxing dinner for two. I have to say it again, I have truly been amazed at what I have been able to accomplish during my Tech Timeout. I think you will be too.
What could you accomplish with an hour of no tech time, daily? Washing your vehicle? Organizing your shoes? Meeting your BFF’s for lunch? There are so many things I plan to do with my daily hour. The more I spend my Tech Timeout doing productive things, the more I want to take another hour, and another… If you are having a hard time trying to figure out what to do during your tech time out, here is a list of suggestions from Tech Timeout.
I’d love to hear what you plan to do during your Tech Timeout.
