Walden zone

The name for an area in your home that is free from technology.

A reference to "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau, it refers to more than just a quiet room, but a place for quiet contemplation and all kinds of discovery and imagination. For example, if the kids are zoning out in front of their third hour of video games and the parents are glued to their smartphones, someone can say "I call Walden zone on you!"

Historical perspective: This term was coined by American writer William Powers in  "Hamlet's BlackBerry: Building a Good Life in the Digital Age."
