Families Encouraged To Take A Break From Technology This Thanksgiving

As we approach Thanksgiving, the people at The Foresters Tech Timeout™ hope that you’ll join us in asking families to take the Tech Timeout™ challenge – a break from technology for an hour, a meal, or the entire holiday.

So what do you think? Could you and your family do an hour? An entire meal? Even a whole day without technology?

In our house I think we can pull off an hour. But between our phones, tablets and NetFlix, it really depends on the time of day I guess.

But I would like to add that for family meals, we go tech free every day.

So are you up for the challenge?

Tips and resources, including a pledge form to take a daily break from technology, can be found their website at www.techtimeout.com or on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TechTimeOut.

This video, which you’ll find on Youtube, is a heartfelt reminder of why families need to unplug and reconnect with each other in a more meaningful way.

The Tech Timeout effort was started by Foresters in 2013 as part of its purpose to enhance family well-being. If you’d like to speak with a spokesperson behind the campaign, please let me know.

Wishing your family a very connected Thanksgiving,
