04 | TECH

With the rise of smart phones and increase of wearables, technology is getting closer and closer to us.

What would shift in us if, for one week, we intentionally kept technology at a distance? 

Note: This week focuses specifically on our technology and devices, and Week 05 will focus specifically on our media intake. In past year's we've wrapped these up into one week, but because technology and media are both so present in our everyday lives, this year we'll spend a week experimenting with each separately!

THIS WEEK'S PRACTICE

Create a “Phone Zone” for your device(s). (Think about both space and hours/time for the use of your devices at home.)

When possible, leave devices in the Phone Zone when leaving the house. 

Explore non-digital options in your everyday routines.

THIS WEEK'S MORNING PRAYER

god, free me from distraction
keep me in tune with your work
within, through and around me 

THIS WEEK FOR KIDS & FAMILIES

Consider as a family how technology is used and present with your family rhythms.
Talk to your kids about the rules you've set for their use of technology while also sharing your own rules/experiments with your own engagement around technology.
Engage fully in this week's practice together!
