I left work on Friday, September 4, 2009 and returned to work this morning September 9, 2009. During the time I was away, I had no computer access, and I found it very refreshing.
I had lots of time to spend reading, relaxing, fishing, talking with my wife, as well as just vegetating. I read five books, watched two movies on DVD, and took a nap each afternoon.
FYI, the books read were:
- Undone by Karin Slaughter
- Storm Cycle by Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen
- Killer Summer by Ridley Pearson
- Vanished by Joseph Finder
- Fire and Ice by J. A. Jance
Sometimes I just need to get away from it all. Usually, I am on the computer all day at work, working on editing two newsletters for computer user groups, and even sometimes cruising the internet strictly for pleasure.
I liked this so much, that I intend to try to schedule a weekend, or long weekend each quarter, to refresh and recharge.
How about it, is this something you have done? If so, how often do you have to recharge? Leave a comment and let me know.
