    Funny how we have come to depend on out tech, personal, professional, business, look at how a retail store like stops dead if the power is out..
    I would find it really hard to be without a phone for 24hrs but it could be done...
    Nah.. nevermind..

    Funny you say that because back in 2003 when the eastern seaboard was without power during the blackout ...there was my wife and I pinning messages back and forth on our blackberries. Although it must be noted that there must have been a window in there where we shut it down as our first child was conceived that night

    Come on guys! 1 day, for your mom, or your wife, or maybe your daughter is a mom? We can do this! Or ladies maybe you ARE a mom? 1 day without our tech!
    I can't get my wife or mom off of their phone. They are both worse than me

    Probably if I am just staying at home and doing pretty much something else other than playing the phone. I guess I could...

    Spent the lion's share of the day with Mom and the rest of my extended family, before relaxing at home and catching up on my DVR'd shows. I will admit at 10pm at the 24 hour mark I was RIGHT on my Mac checking the internet, email, slack, etc. lol I AM still an addict.

    Seems like something I could try out this Saturday. It would be a good break, though I don't have Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.

    The only thing is music. So I guess I can go analog on that one.

    One of the greatest reliefs is to leave town (actual or not) and forget about the phone and internet fir a few days away. Awesome stress relief and renewed peace of mind.

    I think I might start with 1 tech free day a month, and then try to expand it to 1 per week! Maybe make it Sundays.

    @pkcable , during my school holiday, I'll select 1 day and see how long I can last without technology. I've definitely noticed that my family spend a lot of time on their phones or laptops when it's supposed to be 'family time'. Maybe the whole family can participate. 😃

    I had a tendency to forget about mine but now that I have a brand new one and got rid of the landline, it's glued to my palms!

    This ^^^^^

    I'm effectively oncall 24/7 so need to be reachable. We do, however, have a no electronics at the table policy during meals. That's nice bc we actually talk to each other.
