The Top Six Reasons to #UnplugInSixWords


Although Reboot’s “National Day of Unplugging” ran from sundown on March 4 through sundown on March 5, every weekend offers the chance to disconnect from the digital world for 24 hours. Some view it as an opportunity to reconnect in other ways (“I unplug to create better memories.” —ColinBiest), while others seek a much-needed reprieve (“I unplug to avoid the politicians.” —jene2008). Can’t figure out why you should take a break or what to do with your reclaimed time? Whether you take the pledge to get creative, relieve stress, or simply to snuggle up with a book, our Community’s Top Six will make you dream of unplugging 24-7-366 (well, it is a Leap Year):

6. “I unplug to rest my thumbs.” —WouldBeNovelist
