This is why I love vacationing to the wilderness. Get a cabin or camping site outside of cell signal. Grab a nice book and unplug from the world.

Right? It’s nice to actually see the stars at night. Something we just don’t see in the city due to light pollution.

It will take a few days to wind down, it's a physical impulse at this point. Try silencing notifications and not taking your phone with you for a few hours at a time and extend it from there. Enjoy your vacation, keep trying to unplug. I successfully didn't check email or work for the first time ever on my last vacation and it was a totally different (better) vacation.

Seriously, what is wrong with you. Unplug and focus on the rest of your life outside of work. And if you don’t have one, it’s time to build some relationships and hobbies. There’s more to life than just work you know.

Do you have your personal and work phone merged?

Pass that energy over here please as I plan fory second Starbucks run of the morning cuz I can't focus

Nothing. It's a habit. You can delete the work account if you can't help it and reinstall once you are back.

I am guessing anxiety. Try to stay deliberately away from your phone for 3-4 days and you will be able to control the urge better. Do something else to focus your mind elsewhere.

Delete email from phone for 48 hours then re add it. It’s tech addiction, most of us have it

Addicted to work

Only when I’m not at work lol

Get that email app off your phone, especially if it’s your personal phone

How do I divide the chores in this case? I’m the breadwinner - husband has been taking time off from work. No kids. Two dogs. I feel like I do more chores because there are some things that I just can’t stand. Like dishes left in the sink, dirty floor, dirty dogs, laundry…etc. When I ask him to do those chores, he says he will do them later but he takes forever. So I do them instead. He does grocery shopping, yard work, some cooking. Is it unfair if I repeatedly ask him to do more? 😡😡

Hi Ladies, I just need to talk my thoughts out. I’m about to visit my SO’s family with him out of state and stay for four days. I agreed to do so a few months back.

I’m about to head to airport soon and really really really don’t want to go. But I feel bad for cancel so last minute. This is purely on my bandwidth, not them…
