My family and I went on vacation last week. We decided ahead of time that we wouldn't bring our computers with us. No tablets either. I had a concern before we left -- I wondered what would happen if my creativity started surging through me, and I couldn't write a story, song, or blog post. But I realized, and I know this sounds obvious, but hey -- I realized I could actually write in a notebook. So I brought my notebook with me, and tucked the laptop away at home until my return.
We brought our phones so we could stay in touch if we were separated or we had to call a hotel or rental car place -- but my wife and I decided we would only check emails on our phones twice a day for business reasons, once in the morning and once at night, and only for a few minutes.
