Out With The Old, In With The New: Turn Off the Distractions for a Day

Throughout the month of December, The Simple Dollar is posting a daily series focusing on specific activities you can do right now to set the stage for a great 2011. Out with the old, in with the new.

25. Turn off the distractions for a day.

It’s Christmas day. Right now, there’s a mountain of snow outside and a bunch of children enjoying their Christmas gifts inside.

Instead of spending my time texting people who aren’t bothering to be with me or browsing the internet while in a houseful of people who are choosing to spend their time with me, I think I’ll play with some of my kids’ toys with them, get in a game of cards with my siblings, and go sledding down a big hill with my kids.

Turn off the distractions for a day and have some experiences instead. Tomorrow, when you text and hit Facebook, you’ll have something exciting to write about.
