April 21 - April 27 is Canadian Mental Detox Week.
Canadians are encouraged to abstain from their favorouite TV shows by shutting off the idiot box for seven days straight each year. This year, Mental Detox Week will include other gadgets like IPods, Blackberries, tell phone texting, video games and computers!
Turnoff Wek, as it is known in the USA was an idea started in 1994 to get people away from the tube and back to the basics of entertainment for one week.
This is about exploring what the world has to offer when the screens go dark!
This year, it wll be a challenge for many people as tv series are just reestarting and sports playoffs are at their peak.. Can you live without watching tv and playing with today's gadgets?
What do you do instead with all that time? Play board games with your family, go for walks, eat out, play sports, spend time with your friends, spring clean, go to museums, work on crafts, read a book at a coffee shop, whatever your heart desires.
So, this year I'd like to see if what everyone at the Fort manages to achieve. Let's allow posting on the Fort as the only computer-acceptable activity! And let everyone know what you did to Mentally Detox next week!!
