Vacation: To stay plugged in or unplug?

May 23rd, 2013 at 9:24 pm by under Gadget Talk, WTHI Blog

Next week, I plan to take some time off of work. I’m not doing anything special…except maybe try some of the places the Fork in the Road guys ate…and play some video games.

This got me thinking though, to stay plugged in or to unplug?

Our world is becoming more and more connected. When I’m at home I get my work email on my phone, tablet and laptop.

That can be very nice when you are in the work groove, I wouldn’t want it any other way…but how about for time off?

A study from Expedia.com said that 55 percent of workers come back from vacation not feeling refreshed.

That’s obviously not a good thing…since you know, that’s the point of vacation time.

The lines between work and time off are getting more and more blurred.

I will be the first to admit, I have a hard time disconnecting from my work at the station while on vacation…or even while I’m home sick.

What do you think? Is unplugging something you feel like you can and should do…or is it too hard to get away?

Let me know in the comments!
