365 Inspirations—76: Turning it OFF

"Take an hour a day and turn that thing off."—Eric Schmidt, Google Executive

Writing every single day makes me realize how CONNECTED I am and sometimes I want to just TURN IT OFF.

So today, that's what I'm going to do. It's a challenge to keep blogging every day, but my inspiration today is that at 6pm, I'm going to turn off all my TECHNOLOGY and take a BREAK.

Thanks for coming here and for reading!

There will be more great posts and interviews coming up in the very near future and after Tuesday I'll be blogging from the land of Aloha! Something to look forward to!

So my question for you today is this:

Have you ever taken a BREAK from all technology? How long was your break?


  1. My breaks from technology have usually occurred by chance. For example, I just didn't turn on the computer because I was tired, and realized a day later that I hadn't missed it. It's easier for me to turn off the TV and the computer than it is to turn off my iPhone. I tend to keep that close by. But I can go hours without checking it.

  2. Good morning, Katherine (morning over here where I live). Yes, I have, a bit while I was in Loures. At least we were a bit apart from computers and even the telephone...they had only tv there, but I didn't watched it often.

    We would talk often with eachother and go out to diferent places, too. :) which was diferent for me... just to get away from the stress and agitation... :)

    Q: What are advice can you give to someone who is willing to be less around technology?


  3. Oh goodness I SO need to do this Katherine. I tell myself frequently that I need to take an entire 24-hour period technology free!!
