It's my belief that the point of "unplugging movement" isn't to completely tear us away from our devices -- in fact, it's quite the opposite. The point of disconnecting from our devices and reconnecting to the world around us is to remind us that there is a world outside of our screens -- and as a result, there's a way to come back to them and use them in a more mindful manner.
Last Monday was terrible. The phone began ringing before 9 a.m., I had back-to-back (to-back) meetings well into the afternoon, and by the time happy hour arrived, I was not happy at all. My back hurt and my head was spinning. I was, what my mom used to call, "cranky." Then a friend sent me an email.
