How many of you can say that you honestly relax? OK, scratch that – how many of you with responsibilities and/or full time job’s can say that you honestly relax?
it’s difficult to do nothing, man!
i find it extremely difficult to disconnect from this insane world of work emails, text messages, Twitter, Instagram, personal emails, phone calls, etc. I’m constantly checking and double checking and crossing t’s and dotting i’s. I’ll go as far as saying that e-mail is one of the worst things that’s ever happened to humanity. It has turned many, including myself into a manic, robotic, psychopath. More psycho than I’ve ever been – just specifically and perfectly in tune with exactly what I hate.
Email is far too professional, not fun, way too proper. not my style.
Disconnecting for awhile can be extremely healthy. But I’ll also say that it’s only healthy during that very short time of the faux disconnect. Because afterwards, coming back to the reality of everyday life and catching up on work that you may have missed can take forever.
It makes life at work so much more difficult when you come back from a relaxing vacation. The feeling of being behind on so many levels sucks. It almost makes the disconnect not worth it. Currently feeling like I need to re-learn what the F is going on in order to incorporate myself back into the reality of work-life again. woof, not fun.
de-stress, de-connect, de-compress. LEARN THESE CHARACTERISTICS. do what you can on every level to not lose them.
