Listen Now: How To (Really) Unplug On Your Next Vacation
Most people take vacations… but only a few actually relax.
Time off is a luxury that most of us look forward to. Unfortunately, thanks to technology and free wi-fi it’s hard to unplug. But while you don’t just earn the time off, you need it, so here’s how to recharge.
According to MSN Money, start by setting limits on your availability when you are on vacation. Tell people you won’t answer emails or phone calls before or after a certain time. Unless it’s an emergency it can wait until tomorrow.
Get everything ready before your vacation. Get your projects done a few days before so you can handle last-minute problems, and give your clients notice you will be out of the office for a few days. Make sure they know who they can go to for any problems when you’re out of the office.
Finally, trust your team. If you’re a good worker then chances are you will be missed. Hopefully you’re not the only one putting in a little effort, so let someone else carry the load. Then get a little sun.
