20 Ways to Unplug and Unwind: Power Down and Live Life Outside

We all could use a little time away from technology. According to a cross-platform study by Nielsen, the average American spends a staggering 11 hours per day with electronic media. Do those numbers surprise you?
 
If anything, they should serve as a good reminder to take a step away from all things electronic and focus on the world around you. We’ve put together a two-week challenge to replace one technology-reliant activity with one that relies on nothing but the good old imagination and a healthy desire to get outside. Here are our fourteen ideas to keep you entertained, enjoy life around you, and reconnect with what really matters.
 
Write a handwritten gratitude note and send it the old fashioned way — in the mail.
Put away the iPad and cook a favorite meal from a passed-down family recipe.
Take a nap and don’t set an alarm. You deserve it!
Don’t tell Google, but we’re going to go it alone on this one, sans Google Maps. Be a tourist in your own city and get lost on purpose. You’ll be surprised at the local gems you uncover.
Read a book. Not an e-book. One with actual paper.
Organize your closet. Facebook can wait.
Host a “No Electronics Party.” Have your guests check their phones at the door.
Organize a neighborhood board game night with the classics, like Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble. (No spell check allowed)
Abandon your iScrapbook for the night and indulge in some trips down memory lane with your old school family photo binders.
Cheer up a friend or neighbor with some home baked pastries. No .com necessary.
It’s too beautiful out there to not embrace it. Grab a sketchbook and some drawing utensils, head outside and capture the sunset.
Put on a neighborhood talent show. Invite everyone who has a unique gift or passion, and give them the uninterrupted stage for the night.
If you’re having a hard time letting go of your devices, go for a long swim. You can’t take your phone in the pool!
Your yard beckons. Play hide and seek with the kids.
Easy enough, right? Now that you’re ready to Live Life Outside, let’s get your yard in peak shape http://www.trugreen.com/get-a-quote/custom-services/ so you can enjoy it to the fullest.  
 

We could all use a little break from technology. Need some inspiration? Here are some suggestions to help you make your own 14 day challenge.
