She is giving two families: a one week challenge--focus on each other and not screens... avoid being plugged in to tech and not connecting with each other...
-cut out all technology, including her show ;)
-no eating out at all, brown bag your lunch
-no spending except one budgeted trip to grocery store
-one family project to give back
-one date night
-no working late
What on this list appeals to you? What could you live without, for a little while? Do you find yourself or others needing to cut out tech usage in order to truly focus on friends/family sometimes?
See Oprah's letter here...
Her first family seems pretty devastated by the technology shut down so far... we'll see. I bet they are going to LOVE IT.... *update--they did!!! They even agreed to go a second week without their tech toys...
