3) Work/Life balance lines will be crossed, which may affect work spilling over in the future during important family time and outings.
4) A true sense of rest may not be garnered.
5) You will not truly be living in the moment by constantly checking in with work and working.
Every person views work/life balance differently, therefore this matter most times will be dealt with on a subjective basis pursuant to that person and where they are employed. Additionally, some entrepreneurs do not have the luxury of totally unplugging and getting away with no work distractions, as evidenced by one of my clients who worked during her honeymoon. Whatever you decide, make sure the true goal of your vacation is met, rest and relaxation, even if it includes plugging in every once and a while to ensure everything is running smoothly.
