Technology Shabbats

For nearly a decade, my family and I have turned off all screens for one day a week for what we call our “Technology Shabbats,” or “Tech Shabbats.” Every Friday night, we all unplug from all of our technologies and don’t turn them on again until Saturday evening. Unplugging for a day makes time slow down and makes me feel more present with my family. I not only appreciate this quality time with them, but it has also made me appreciate technology in a whole new way. By Saturday night we can’t wait to plug back in.
