Summer Vacations from Social Media

20180717_211002No apologies. Summer has arrived and with it the expected lull in my output. That is what summertime is all about though. Stepping away from it all for a bit to enjoy time spent with family and friends. Basking in hot days at the lake and catching up with friends poolside over drinks. Jumping up to dance to old and new favourite musicians at summer music festivals, and staring in awe at sunsets that make you respect life a little more. I love it all!

But what of work and writing you ask? Well, I am trying to sneak in a bit of that too. I’ve met with a few new people for networking. I have a business meeting with a potential new client next week. And I just sent off an email to someone else whom I would love to add to my client base as well. Plus, a couple of my existing clients have events coming up in the next few weeks that I plan to attend. It is all about finding the balance.

So if you don’t catch me at the computer first thing in the morning, I’m okay with that. In today’s digital age, you can always reach me via email, text, or by tagging me on a social media website. I try to disengage when I can, but as my workplace is a virtual playground, I am always on to a certain extent. It’s one of those perks I am lucky to have and that keep me going the rest of the year. And honestly, I think I am a happier person for disengaging with the torrent of news and basking in a little face time with others when I can.

How do you balance life and work in the summer?
