A 9-to-5 work week can be brutal. Deadlines, phone calls, notifications and alarms, never-ending email chains and tons of caffeine to keep up with it all.
That’s just an average 40-hour week for some people. Executives and entrepreneurs typically add up to 20 additional hours to their schedules. Gruelling schedules mean professionals are tied to their handheld devices and laptops — constantly plugged in to the electronic chatter.
Hard work deserves a serious vacation — one where you can unplug from technology and melt into euphoric surroundings, void of concrete buildings, Ubers, and conference tables.
As it turns out, such a place exists. Let me introduce you to a piece of heaven on earth.
Stashed away off the eastern coast of the Baja California Peninsula is Loreto, Mexico -- home of the Villa del Palmar luxury resort.
The islands of Loreto cater to everyone who wants to unplug from the whirlwind of electronic devices and social media.
Here's a place that compels you to disconnect from the tech frenzy and reconnect with peace of mind and a sense of self.
The temperature is almost perfect, and the air is clean -- no faint smells of exhaust fumes, fast food, or hot asphalt from miles of traffic.
