#785 the handle

If you think about work like pulling a wagon, then vacation becomes a chance to stop pulling it.  Many people who take time off are able to do so.

But there are others, who even though they aren't pulling, can't quite seem to put the handle down.  

They may not answer emails, but they read them.  They may not call in the office, but are regularly checking to see who called them.  They bring work to read on the plane or a laptop to "get a few things done" while they are away.

Before summer is totally gone and the structure and routine of fall return, take some time to put the handle down.  All the way.

Take a lesson from the hit song in Frozen and "let it go".  Even a short break can do wonders if you truly disengage.
