From the founder of Getaway, a guide to unplugging and reconnecting with what really matters on a daily basis

Rather than running yourself into the ground and waiting until your next vacation to recharge, Getting Away invites you to make space in your everyday routine for self-care and deeper connection with others. With 75 easy-to-implement practices, this book helps you to slow down despite the frenetic pace of the world around you by:

    Creating a morning routine that doesn't involve checking work e-mails
    Surprising someone in your life with a small gift, just because
    Spending at least 30 minutes outside daily
    Striking up a conversation with a stranger

Getting Away doesn't require you to discard your smartphone or majorly overhaul your life. Rather, it's about making simple changes in your day-to-day routine to strike the right balance between passion for your career and guilt-free relaxation, staying up-to-date on the latest headlines without losing sight of the people right in front of you, or appreciating nature in the middle of a bustling city. By helping you get the balance right, this book shows you how to thrive in what can be an overwhelming world.
