Getting Away: 75 Practices for Finding Balance in Our Always-On World

Getting Away—written by Jon Staff, founder of Getaway—is a guide to daily unplugging and reconnecting with what really matters.

There’s no quick answer or easy recipe to balancing work and leisure or connection and disconnection. This collection of simple practices is not instructional, prescriptive, or comprehensive, but it invites you to take a moment of quiet from all the noise of daily life. It isn’t about giving up the internet or overhauling your life from top to bottom; rather it’s about making space in your everyday routine for little choices that deepen your connection with yourself and others. It’s meant to be an offering of ideas; a starting point for understanding the small things that make a meaningful difference in your life.
