SamTastic Weekly Tip - 6-20-22: Take the Tech Challenge

Today’s Tip: Take the Tech Challenge

A Google search for the benefits of taking a vacation from tech turns up 1.5 billion results. The research is clear:

There are 6 Benefits of Unplugging from Technology

  • Reduces Stress and Anxiety. Unplugging from technology is like a reboot for your brain. ...

  • Opportunity to Focus on Appreciation and Gratitude. ...

  • Provides More Time for Simple Pleasures. ...

  • Reduces Feelings of Loneliness. ...

  • Connect with the Natural World. ...

  • Allows You to Be Present.

So, take the challenge. When you leave school for a vacation this month or next, disengage from technology. Set your email and cell phone to provide an automated response so others know you are literally on vacation and won’t see messages until you return.

This can be rejuvenating and freeing. Give it a try? If so, you might start scheduling time each day for the 2022-23 school year where you take a tech break. SAM leaders who do so report being far more sensitive to others, better listeners, happier and able to better focus.
