secular sabbath in the NY Times

I Need a Virtual Break. No, Really.

Mark Bittman writes about the need to escape technology and connect to yourself once a week. I think it's a great idea.

In short, my name is Mark, and I'm a techno-addict. But after my airplane experience, I decided to do something about it. Thus began my "secular Sabbath" -- a term I found floating around on blogs -- a day a week where I would be free of screens, bells and beeps. An old-fashioned day not only of rest but of relief.
Escaping screens for 24 hours a week could only be a good thing for me.
