Ever struggle with taking the time to unplug from your phone? I got a solution for you that you can join in on. 

March 1-2,  2019 is the #DayofUnplugging

Reboot is an incubator of Jewish arts and culture. It is an innovative non-profit that challenges what Jewish is. They reimagine Jewish traditions and rituals for the 21st century to help people create their own Jewish life. 

What the National Day of Unplugging in?

How Dan Rollman started the Sabbath Manifesto.

Resting starts with putting away our technology

Celebrities like Katy Katie Couric, Ariana Huffington, and Richard Branson are practicing #unplugging

Power of Unplugging, time to rest. We all crave, but it’s hard to do. We have to consciously make this decision.

The 10 Principles of the Sabbath Manifesto (link at bottom) 

Take them and apply them in a way that fits you.

Tanya tries to implement in daily with her family for an unplugged dinner to rest and reconnect. 

Why it’s also important to consistently unplug. 

Her Tea Time she implements to reclaim connection – like a quick game, a puzzle, or conversation.

How kids really crave connection with their parents. It’s so easy to just let others work on their phones, so we need to really make an effort to connect.

Tips for those who’d like to disconnect to connect:

1. State things in an I way not a you way

2. Bring it up in a conversation 

3. Take responsibility 

How to start a group for the day of unplugging

Come up with things to do because if you don’t prepare yourself you’ll feel lonely, have FOMO. For example, if you plan a hike or a painting class with friends you can choose to unplug together in advance.

Phantom Phone feeling we all have where we feel like our phone is vibrating in our pants when we don’t have it on us.

Cell-phone sleeping bags to physically put phones away. Studies behind why having phones out, even if not used, distracts the conversation.

“A person's success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.” – Tim Ferriss

What do you Unplug for_______

This campaign is to get people to think about all the things they can do when they unplug. There are a ton of things we love to do unplugged, but we just don’t always think about it.

What do you enjoy doing without your device? 

Tanya and The Sabbath Movement’s Gift to give people back their time, bodies, and connections. In other words, the power to take our lives back and be mindful of our use of technology.

A way for more people who didn’t think they could do Shabbat to observe Shabbat.
