How many times have you planned on checking your phone quickly for new emails or status updates, but end up getting distracted and wasting a lot of time? Today's challenge is to stay "unplugged" from electronics in the morning!

There are a lot of obstacles in the morning that stand in the way of getting out of the house on time. It's very easy to become distracted by your computer, television, or phone. Save time in the morning by keeping your TV off and your phone tucked away in your purse!

Are you easily distracted by electronics in the morning? Would you have a tough time "unplugging"? Do your kids get slowed down in the morning by electronics?

I'm a full-time, working mom so our mornings are busy getting ready and everyone out the door. I  really have no time to check any electronics.  What I DO do is once I get home at the end of the day, I pretty much stay away from the computer and my cell phone and quiet everything down.  I find that life is simpler like this because then I don't feel like a slave to technology.

I usually get distracted by CM in the mornings, but it's okay because I don't have to go anywhere most days.  My dd doesn't get slowed down by electronics.

Mornings are my quiet time. I need to stay unplugged in the afternoon. LOL

 I check my phone for calls/texts first thing. After that, phone is down unless I get a call or text.

I'm easily distracted. Today I'm busy with diaper laundry, cooking, cleaning, and schooling my little ones. Hopefully I'll not get too distracted. LOL

This wouldn't be a challenge for my family at all. The only thing that on in the mornings us the radio. We don't watch TV when we are getting ready to go anywhere. We get up get ready and go. I agree the TV and computer are huge distractions. That's why my kids don't have them in their rooms, or their own computer. We all share and when it's not your turn on the computer you are outside or playing something else. So Challenge #1 is no challenge for us.

I sit on CM while I pump first thing in the am, but we have nowhere to be. When I need to get out the door I don't usually check my phone unless I'm waiting to hear from someone
