Today’s world moves at a very fast pace. You talk on cell phones. A great deal of communication is done with email. You are in your own little world on the way to work. You might work in a cubicle in a separate world. On the way home, it is the same thing. When you get home, you might watch television or spend time on the Internet.
After dinner, you may or may not see the rest of the family for more than a few minutes. This can happen many times. Before long, the years will pass by. You will not know where they went.
A low tech evening may help to slow the pace down and be good for everyone. Turn off the television, computers and cell phones. Schedule a low tech evening, once a month. Do something that does not require electronic assistance. Fun jigsaw puzzles are the perfect low tech entertainment. This will give you an opportunity to travel back in time to much simpler days.
Try to not have any music either. This way, you will feel yourself depending on others for entertainment. You may get to know your own family better. There is very little to lose from tying this. It is not expensive. In fact, you might save considerable money over a normal night out.
You can have snacks and soft drinks. Just try to keep everything low tech. It may be a challenge. However, you may find that it is an enjoyable experience.
