National Day of Unplugging 2013

unplugUnplugging? What’s that? What will you do with your time?  These are the questions being posed this year with the NationalDayofUnplugging.com.

Take the pledge and commit to unplug to ________  on March 1-2, 2013. (It’s like a MadLib. You fill in the blank!).

The National Day of Unplugging is designed to help hyper-connected people of all backgrounds to embrace the ancient ritual of a day of rest. Sign up to be part of NDU 2013.

The National Day of Unplugging is a 24 hour period – running from sunset to sunset – and starts on the first Friday in March. The project is an outgrowth of The Sabbath Manifesto, an adaption of our ancestors’ ritual of carving out one day per week to unwind, unplug, relax, reflect, get outdoors, and connect with loved ones.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
