At some point or another we have all been a little bit of an addict to our tech toys.  Some have it a little worse than others, but none of us are perfect.  Every so often I have a day that I feel like I have to step away from the technology.  Truthfully, I don’t have that hard of a time, but that’s just because I really enjoy hiking.  Hiking is one task that can take all day and you really can’t use your phone in the areas I tend to frequent.  Now there are others that may not remember the last time they went completely offline.  If you want to give it a try there is one site that you can head to and make a pledge.

You’ll be pledging to do 10 no device dinners between now and Thanksgiving of this year.  Then on Thanksgiving Day have a full no device day.  Originally it was set for September 18th, but they’ve changed it to Thanksgiving Day.  The goal of the founders is to help people really enjoy the people around them instead of constantly checking their phone.  You can read all about why the founders decided to start up this pledge.  Right now they have 10,729 pledges and it’s still a long way from Thanksgiving.  Head on over to their website if you think you can handle the time away from your gadgets.
