I realised it's OK to tune out.
During my time without a phone, I checked email three times a day instead of 46. I did bring my laptop on the trip with me, and I knew it'd be irresponsible to completely disconnect from my job, but I realised I don't always have to be so worried about responding to a question or a request within 10 minutes after it was sent to me.
As a fashion editor, I am always strategizing about new stories we can write and assigning content, but sometimes freeing the mind from planning can be so healthy and refreshing. By the end of the long weekend, I was able to breathe knowing the work never stops, but I can always pause it and resume later.
