Get off your phone! Put down that iPad! This holiday season TELUS is inviting everyone to enter Holiday Mode and relish in face-to-face moments with their loved ones. The holidays are a time to revisit those connections in your life that can’t be replaced by checking Instagram or scrolling through your newsfeed.
Here are a few tips on how to “unplug” from us as well as how other Vancouverites will be spending time with loved ones this holiday season:
No matter where we are in the world, my family always comes together for Christmas. This year, we’ll all be together in North Vancouver, celebrating our many traditions including but not limited to a Ukrainian Christmas Eve feast, getting up at 5AM Christmas morning to open stockings, watching It’s a Wonderful Life and going for a Christmas 5K!

Take baby steps
It sounds silly but a lot of people find it hard to fight the urge to check their phone. Avoid device withdrawal by just setting small goals for yourself like not checking your phone during dinner or putting it on silent during meetings.
