Recently my husband and I bought a coupon for a two-night stay at a resort and spa. It’s a challenge for us to get away for vacation because of his business schedule and my work, so a short stay was a perfect way to reset our lives.
On our trip, we discovered that it’s incredible to have a conversation without interruption from our cell phones and iPads, pets, check-in duties, and other responsibilities.
Now, following our trip, we are trying to set time aside to relax and recharge. The phones are going on silent.
Do you give yourself and family time away from your cell phones or digital devices and other responsibilities? Has that time away helped you to stay more focused and connected to the people in your life?
