Unplug (and Recharge!)

Brenda Knight (author of Random Acts of Kindness) opens your eyes to pausing or disconnecting from the digital world.

    Forego using technological devices today. Texting your friends, watching your favorite show, and checking your email- all can wait until tomorrow! Turn off your devices and turn on your senses! Reading a book, cook a meal, and enjoy the outdoors by taking a walk or tending to your garden. Technology distracts us from the real world, occupying our attention with game applications, chat rooms, social media websites, commercials, and so on. Want to know what’s going on in the news? Read a newspaper. Be aware of the here and now by finding activities that don’t require electricity or a battery. Make your own entertainment!
