Disconnecting From Work While On Vacation

Nowadays it is harder than ever to disconnect from electronics, especially during a vacation. A recent study says that 61 percent of those surveyed did at least some work while on their last vacation.

On top of that, many bosses expect their employees to be available by email while others are afraid their bosses will realize their position is no longer needed.

How do you totally disconnect when on vacation and how do you do it without anxiety? Lizzie Post, contributor at the Emily Post Institute and Co-Author of the Etiquette Advantage in Business, joined The KDKA Morning News to discuss how to do that.
