By the time you read this post, I will be on day four of a 10-day vacation – one week and the surrounding weekends. My sister Sandy and I will be in Lake Lure, N.C. for what we hope will be some interesting sightseeing, relaxation, reading, eating, spa’ing… the usual vacation activities.
Except for one thing. My need (or perceived need) to pop on to email and check out Facebook and Twitter; and let’s not forget the newest member of the social media family, Google Plus.
Sandy is a schoolteacher and other than an occasional professional development session, can usually block out work for the entire summer. She gets my need to check-in but really wishes it wasn’t necessary. But I think it is… or is it?
So for today’s Tip, I’m asking for some help. What do you do to unplug when you’re on vacation? Do you give yourself a little time online or can you be away from it completely? If all goes well, I won’t see these responses until I get back to the office (unless I can sneak a quick peak while Sandy is taking a nap!)
