Our Tech Timeout Challenge - Week 2

Last week we took a pledge to stop using technology as much in order to spend more quality time together (you can take your own pledge here). Last week, I eased myself in gently and gave up using my mobile phone whilst watching tv. It was hard at first but I am used to it now and I actually PAY ATTENTION to the tv shows I am watching.

This week, I decided to take the challenge further when we enjoyed a family trip to a local farm park. I took the brave decision to LEAVE MY PHONE AT HOME! Yikes!

I actually found this pretty easy as we were having lots of fun together - the only times I missed my phone were when they were running around softplay (this is when I'd usually check facebook) and I don't wear a watch so I'm sure I was annoying my husband constantly asking for the time.

We were out of the house for 6 hours in total and you know what - I hadn't missed anything! I had however had a lovely memorable day with the family. I urge you to give it a go.

If you fancy taking part in the challenge this Christmas, visit The Tech Timeout Website for further information and ideas.
