DailyDish: Turn off your cell phone

Filed under: Activities: Babies, Life & Style, Gadgets, Home Remedies, Resources

Turn off your cell phone.

Or your blackberry or your iPhone (unless you're using it as a music source). Nah--just turn it off and get a boom box or something--otherwise you'll be tempted. Tell people in advance that you're shutting down that immediate contact device with the rest of the outside world and use the silence as a golden opportunity to spend some time with your family.

If your kids and spouse have cell phones advise them to turn theirs off as well. No texting, to web-surfing, no rearranging who's in their five. Wow--with all the time you'll all have left over you might actually be able to get into that family-sized Twister marathon you've always dreamed of!
