I’ve never been a big fan of vacations. I enjoy seeing new places and having fun experiences outside the daily routine, but I’ve never much enjoyed the whole not working part. I’d rather bring my laptop and do some work while experiencing new things.

But I’ve started to enjoy the vacation concept more, except in fragments. Rather than a vacation from everything, I’m trying out mini vacations. Pick one thing to take a vacation from for a day or a week and do it.

It’s a great way to learn more about what role various activities play in my life too. A vacation from social media, or reading, or alarm clocks reveal stuff about my current habits and lifestyle that I may not know just from thinking about it.
