  1. Hey Jenna! Really enjoyed your article. Love how you split it up into each day – I could really feel Josh and Kathleen’s pain! Haha! Very entertaining. Keep the good stuff coming! 🙂


  2. What a fabulous piece. I think Kathleen nailed it: Do an experiment. See how you feel. Don’t worry about the long term — just be in the moment and reflection on how the experiment went without the pressure of doing it forever. You’ll be a changed person no matter what. I want to share this with our middle schoolers! Thanks for the inspiration.


  3. Great article! I would love for our entire school to unplug for 24 hours. It sounds like there were some powerful lessons learned for Kathleen and Josh. I hope you do a follow-up in a month or so to see if they’ve changed any of their behaviors. I’m definitely going to show this to my advisory group…I’m sure it will generate some good discussions.
