UNPLUGGED

So I was reading Martha Stewart's October 2010 issue of Living (yep... I'm a bit behind on my magazines!) and there was a little note in there that said we should all turn off our smartphones for 30 minutes.

I am so guilty of the need to be constantly connected.  I really think this is a great idea and I'd somehow like to apply this to my everyday life.  So here's what i'm thinking.  Every night for the month of December I'm going to go totally 'offline' for one hour a night.  I'd like to think that the time that I gain from not checking Facebook or looking up silly videos on YouTube I'll spend with my husband doing other silly stuff like chasing the cat around the condo or finding our favorite restaurant in the new neighborhood.  So, no cell phone, no inter-web, no ipod... and I'd like to say no tv (but I have a feeling thats not going to fly...).

I'll let you know how it goes January 1 (or day 2 of the whole experiment)!

That is a great idea. I like to do that at night once hubby gets home to just have some time with him. You will love it too, I know.
