Some of the participants walked pensively along the Pacific Coast at sunset. Others read from the resort bookshelf, choosing from sections labeled: “What can death teach me about life?” and “What are the unexpected pleasures of aging?” The next day, the group would place stickers with ageist slurs all over their chests, arms and faces, and then hurl the stickers into a fire. Later, there would be healing sessions focused on intergenerational collaboration and accepting mortality. That some of those on … [Read more...] about A New Luxury Retreat Caters to Elderly Workers in Tech (Ages 30 and Up)
Digital detox retreat
For some, peace and introspection can help manifest an entire career change or business endeavor. So says Jon Staff, co-author of “How To Get Away: Finding Balance In Our Overworked, Through this Brooklyn-based business, customers rent tiny, back-to-nature, modern cabins located in woodsy outposts within two hours of urban cities, including New York, Boston, Washington and, soon, Los Angeles. The entrepreneur conceived of the wellness travel concept after nearly burning out at a mobile app technology startup at age 25. “I was young and doing what was trendy. It was a grind, and I didn’t particularly care for the thing we were building. I couldn’t motivate myself any longer,” says Staff. To detach and detox, he rented an Airbnb dome house on a Connecticut farm for $35 per night with two of his friends. “It was a simple experience, and we had an amazing time,” says Staff, who then began working remotely more often, traveling around the country in … [Read more...] about Taking a break from the digital world can reset your career

Steven Petrow Special for USA TODAY Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Jul 26, 2018 On a recent Hawaiian vacation, I chose to leave my phone at the house as often as possible. No phone meant no email, no music, no clock, no social media, and no camera. No camera meant no pictures – no snaps of white sand beaches, coffee plantations, or black lava outcrops — which meant no sharing on Facebook and Instagram. Instead I practiced what I’d learned a few years ago at a “Digital Detox” retreat, putting aside the lens to look at the world through my own eyes (and to save it in my own memory, not the camera’s). At that retreat, on a hike through Northern California’s redwood forests, I reflexively itched to photograph and share nature’s beauty thinking, “no picture meant no experience, no memory.” Levi Felix, the program’s late co-founder, suggested we take “Inner-grams” instead – capturing full scenes, including … [Read more...] about Why I only took one photo on my summer vacation, or how to take ‘Inner-grams’
