More about the #IDPBeFree Pledge:

For the first ten days of January, IDP, along with thousands of people worldwide, will take the Be Free pledge. For one hour each day, an hour of our choosing (during which we would normally keep our electronics on), we promise to put down our cell phones, shut off our televisions and other electronics, and simply be present with whatever we're doing. If we're reading, we'll just read. If we're walking, we'll walk. If we're having dinner, we'll eat, and we'll learn to be fully present with whoever is in our company, even if we’re dining alone. It's a one hour mindfulness practice that takes place in life, not just on the cushion.
