I would love to say I could give up all of my jobs for a day. I can’t, but I did take today off from this site and my online job. I instead spent the day with my children after grocery shopping and cooking 3 dinners for the week. I wasn’t sure I would be able to turn off my Blackberry and ignore calls from employees- but I did. I was so good I didn’t even turn on my computer or Blackberry until 7:00 PM. I learned that it is possible and necessary to let it all go. The world isn’t going to end. The best part was I could actually enjoy every moment of the day. I think it is a good idea to check back into your life. I also learned that it is far easier to read the billion emails at once then as they come in.
What do you do to separate yourself from work?
