It’s Memorial Day weekend and many of us have made plans for relaxation away from the office. Can you switch off your your smart phone, Ipad, and laptop? Or are they going too? Study after study shows that we return to work energized after a clean break from technology and the day-to-day routine. Not being encumbered with work-related problems leaves our mind free to enjoy new experiences and the people around us.
What can you do to ease the transition so you can enjoy a care-free vacation? Here are some tips:
1) Tackle projects that need attending to weeks in advance. This is definitely not the time to procrastinate.
2) Allow plenty of time just before you leave to finish tasks that are on your mind.
3) Cancel or reschedule meetings and appointments. That alone will help put your mind at ease.
4) Leave time for “re-entry” into the business world when you return from your getaway. Put off appointments and meetings for a day or so until you have had a chance to get your bearings.
