Yesterday was our 17th wedding anniversary and as requested I spent the entire day away from my computers, and did not use my iPhone … no emails, no web surfing, no phone calls. It was quite peaceful and I thank my wife for the request and quite honestly look forward to making this an annual event.
Of course, this was made much easier by considering the day as a holiday, but also as a last-minute decision it was greatly appreciated by my family, friends, and colleagues to honor our choice, too.
So, I would like to propose that March 25 be set aside as Digital Darkness Day when you take the time to turn off your smart-phones, your computers, and any other devices. Take a quality day for you, your family, and your friends; and, if March 25 is not the best day for you then choose a day that is … but most of all, enjoy!
What a wonderful idea! Happy Belated Anniversary!
@Nancy – Thank You! It just seems like a great way to spend the day.
It was hard, but you survived 😉
Happy Anniversary! We’re about 9 years away from this.
@Emil – It was an interesting challenge but it became easier as the day went on … and thank you.
You’re welcome. There’s nothing more important than this, family always comes first 🙂
