Not only does unplugging benefit a person’s physical and mental health, but it can help you in several other ways, as well!

Every month, a little envelope gets sent to your house with a very unwanted notification inside. How much will the electricity bill be this week? With a fearful thought, you wearily open the envelope! But wait, you remembered that you and your family really emphasized unplugging this past month and it has paid off! Your bill went down $20 from the average!

Turning off the TV and the computer is not only good for your pocket, but it is also good for the environment. The less electricity needed, the less electricity produced! What a great influence you could be!

Likewise, sitting in complete silence while watching TV for hours can get quite lonely after a while. Participating in Unplug allows more time for you to be social with your friends, family, or neighbors. Being social has several health benefits. For one, being socially active can be stress reducer because conversing with others helps you forget about the troubles happening in your life. Also, being social allows you to build a support system that can be there when you need it most.
