No Device Day.
I bet you can’t do it! I dare you! I have done this occasionally, like on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day, when I was with my family. I leave the phone in its charger in my room for the day. I really don’t need to use it and I don’t. Those who are important to me are currently with me. People mean so much more than some stupid device.
I double dare you! If it is not necessary to communicate with an isolated or quarantined loved one, try putting your phone or other device away for the day—the entire day. Find a day when the phone or computer is not necessary for work. No Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. No text messages. No annoying calls. No internet or computer either. Resurrect the art of conversation! Play a classic board game or card game with the family. Read a book. Pray the Holy Rosary. Weather permitting, go outside and shoot a basketball or kick a soccer ball. Get off the couch and get dirty in the yard. More importantly, put down and put away the device.
Maybe it can become a national (no, worldwide) trend.
