I refrain completely from anything related to work on vacay. TBH I really want a complete digital detox while I vacate, but try to limit smartphone interactions to apps that provide a modicum of utility.
Don’t get me wrong. I ❤️ coding but when it starts interfering with relationships it’s time to re-examine priorities. Vacations for me are time to spend with people I care about doing things we can share together. Vacations are a time to explore and my spirit yearns for that sort of unimpeded adventure from time to time. Last year we really didn’t get a vacation, so this year I’m finding at least two weeks to play hard, see parts of the world I haven’t and be with the people I love. I’ll bring a camera, but no laptop.
