Do you check email on vacation?

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

I’m trying to figure out the best way to go on a vacation. Do you stay connected and check email throughout your trip or completely disconnect?

Stay connected and you do not let your mind completely rest. If disconnect then you have 1000+ emails to welcome you home from your trip.

I think you need at least a week a year that you “get off the grid.” If you are able to stay on top of things while on vacation, then perhaps you can take more vacations?

(On a side note, I have not received work email on my phone for 3 years. This has been a huge boost for my sanity. A topic for another post.)
