Did you know that there’s a National Day of Unplugging? It’s true. On the first Friday of March, people are supposed to unplug from their technological devices for 24 hours, from sundown to sundown. No checking your Facebook, posting on Instagram, no doing anything that has to do with technology. But let’s face it, using day to day technologies at work is something we can’t really get away from these days. Luckily, we can still play team building activities without technological devices. However, some of the best team building activities involve cell phones and our other day to day tech devices.
With the New Year coming up, we’ve compiled some of the best team building activities for 2020 that involve using cell phones and other techy things. These team-building activities will enable you to use your smartphones for positive results!
