National Day of Unplugging is a day to honor the simpler things in life and take a step away from technology. Every year it is recognized on the first Friday in the month of March, and this year it will be celebrated on March 3rd, 2023. Technology is an incredible thing that we should be grateful for. It makes everyday tasks quicker and easier and helps to provide entertainment options for people of all ages. However, as a country, many of us have become quite reliant on technology and spend most of our time using it. The National Day of Unplugging is a great day to take a step back from technology, and find something else to occupy ourselves, such as exploring nature, trying a new restaurant or bar, visiting a local attraction, or practicing self-care.  

Exploring nature is a great way to distract yourself from spending too much time using technology.
