Turn off the Tech at Mission: Reconnect

Picture this: a family sits around the dinner table on a Tuesday night. Dinner is made and hot out of the oven. Sounds like a good time so far, right? Dinner starts and not a sound can be heard from the table. Usually, this would mean that the meal was incredibly delicious. Sadly, zoom in on the dinner table to find that all the kids are on social media, another person is on the phone, and another is watching television over the shoulder of the others.

This scene is the reality of many households in the world today. Technology is taking over basic social interactions and people, even the closest families, are forgetting how to share stories, laugh, or even just share a moment together.

If you think that teenagers and young adults are the only culprits, think again.  According to Pew Research Center, 90% of American adults own a cellphone. 32% of American adults own an e-reader. And 42% of the same group also owns a tablet computer. Both kids and parents are inundated and connected to technology of some kind. Quite possibly the most eye opening statistic is that 29% of cell owners describe their cellphone as “something they can’t imagine living without.” Are you, a friend, or family member guilty of always being “plugged in?” If so, JB’s on 41 has the answer.

It’s time to turn off the tech this coming Tuesday for our next Mission: Reconnect event at JB’s on 41. Putting the phones, tablets, and TV’s away for a couple hours to bowl, play, and, most importantly, reconnect with family and friends is a great opportunity. Whether you come to bowl the highest score or just to be with the great people in your life, turning off the tech will be refreshing for everyone. Who knows? Maybe a couple hours of no-technology time at JB’s on 41 will make your next family dinner quiet only between bites as you fill yourselves up with the great food, wonderful stories, and plenty of laughter.

It's time to make time for your family in the new year!
