How to unplug on vacation

Be honest…

How often do you go on vacations where you completely unplug?

If you’re like most attorneys, you might take trips and long weekends (for a comical yet accurate description of the difference between a trip and vacay, read this.

But you probably never take a true vacation where you completely check out.

I used to be the same way.

It took me 10 years of practicing law before I did that and it scared the crap out of me!!!

I shared that story and how I prepared in Episode #13 of the Hustle & Flow podcast.

As I’m preparing for a wonderful trip to Banff (although I’m excited, the amount of hiking on my agenda makes it a trip, not a vacay…), I’m already getting anxious about completely checking out.

Not because I don’t think my business will survive without me. But because I have no idea what to do with myself when I’m supposed to be relaxing!

I was in desperate need of a pep talk, so I decided to cover the topic again but this time with a new twist.

In today’s episode, I’m reviewing research related to vacations (I was shocked and fascinated with the findings) AND I’m doing a short interview with Tarsila Crawford.

After she listened to Episode #13, she took her first fully unplugged vacation in 10 years. Her story is amazing and I’m honored to have had a small part in her journey. ?
