I've decided that one night each week will involve no digital entertainment whatsoever. From the moment we get off work there will be no tv, videogames, smartphone or computer screen being used for any leisure activity.
What will we do?
First and foremost we will cook a healthy dinner; the rest of the night can be spent doing something productive or creative like reading books, playing a board-game, exercising, relaxing outside, and of course playing with our son.
This is not a condemnation of technology, I'm not wagging my finger at smartphones and hurumphing while I shake my fist at teenagers for walking on my lawn. This is just a fun and convenient way for my family to look at the calender, pick a day, and engage exclusively with our physical reality. Maybe it will help us find new activities, or it can elevate our appreciation for activities that previously went over-looked.
Tonight is the first weekly unplug for our family. I will post updates and pictures on instag- Oh! That's right, you will just have to take my word for it ;)
