Make Your Vacation Count

A vacation should be a break from your usual treadmill of work, errands and chores. But if you’re obsessively checking email and voicemail, are you really getting a break? “Set boundaries for yourself,” says Gannon. Avoid, or at least limit, checking email, texts and voicemails.
