As per the title. Can you survive without your phone, tablet, smart watch, laptop etc for 24 hours.

Not during the week as that will be unrealistic.
But maybe a Saturday or Sunday?

Willing to try. That is all I can say.

Did this last year when we got engaged. We only used our phones to take pictures over the weekend. It was bliss and makes me miss the days when we weren't expected to be always reachable on every avenue of social media

Yes, I often spend weekends away where there is nothing, not even electricity so a phone means nothing unless I want to take a pic.
But I hardly do that when in company as there are always people around me taking photos.

I did the 5 day Otter Trail earlier this year, left my phone behind, absolute bliss having zero technology for 5 days.

Afrikaburn is the same, I go for 10 days at a time and leave my phone in the cubby for that entire time

I have done digital detox, but I have to take time to read my email and I do this on my mobile devices, so no way around this unless I can possibly take leave which is impossible.

Going to the loo is also MyBroadband prime time.

Do you also have pics of @ShaunSA in your spank bank?

Yup, once a year.
