As the month of March begins to roll along, we must acknowledge a day that is designed to impact the world of electronics. National Day of Unplugging is brought to us on Friday, March 3rd.
So, on March 3rd, challenge yourself to unplug and do something productive. Here are some things you could do instead of staring at a screen all day:
- Relax with your friends
- Read a book
- Go for a walk
- Go to the park
- Go sledding
- Have a snowball fight
