Getting ready to take that summer vacation with your family? Here’s your crash course for how to turn off technology and unplug from the office, social media, and other irrelevant “notifications” (AKA interruptions) that distract you from being present with your family and friends on your summer vacation.
It’s 1996. You’re packing for your much-needed vacation with your family. You walk through the airport to your gate (TSA who?) Maybe listen to your Sony Walkman on the flight. Your kids fight over who gets to listen to the new Backstreet Boys CD on the Panasonic Mash, they work it out eventually. Upon arrival to the resort everyone slathers up in coconut-scented sunblock, you style it up with some zinc for your nose, grab a book, a cooler, and spend the reach of the day soaking up some serious rays. You take turns rotating with family members or ask a stranger to snap 2-3 obligatory summer vacation family photos with your disposable camera (because there was no such thing as a selfie), and then its smooth sailing with Mai Tai’s and Pina Coladas for the rest of the day.
