You know I’m soooooo down with this one! Here’s more on this via PC World -
Hey, you! Put that smartphone down! Back away from that iPad! Switch off your laptop, and stop Tweeting! It’s almost time for the Second Annual National Day of Unplugging. After all, even geeks need to disconnect now and then.
Based on the concept of the Jewish Sabbath (i.e. a day of rest), the National Day of Unplugging is put on by a group called Sabbath Manifesto. It runs from sundown on March 4 to sundown on March 5, and is exactly what the name implies–it’s a day of rest from all gadgets and electroinics.
Sabbath Manifesto has a list of its Ten Principles to follow during the National Day of Unplugging. The basic gist: It’s a chance for you to avoid technology, get some fresh air, and get back in touch with friends and family.

Avoid technology? Connect with loved ones? Nurture your health? Get outside? Hey, those are all great things! And, something we should do much more often than we do, in our society, as a whole.
