Truly Unplug & Leave Your Work Behind | Unplug | Scoop.it
If you’re getting ready to go on vacation for the holidays, are you planning to truly disconnect from work or do you expect to get roped into work calls and emails while you’re away?
Susan Taylor's insight:

Getting ready for that holiday vacation?  How will you spend it?  Disconnected from work or roped into calls and emails?  Alison Green shares with us some great tips on how to truly unplug and leave your work behind.

  2. Give people plenty of notice before you leave.
  3. Give your contact information to one person who will act as your gatekeeper.
  4. Set up an informative out-of-office message to inform people you are on vacation.
  5. Take your email off your phone.
  6. Resist the temptation to check-in with the office.
  7. If you really can't unplug completely, set boundaries with your office.
