I used to go to Camp Grounded on Memorial Day weekend. It’s a “digital detox”. No technology for 3 days. You don’t use your real name, and you don’t talk about work or what you do at all.
As a chronic workaholic it was a great opportunity to separate the “what” from the “who.” E.g. I do software development, but that’s not all I am. It’s helped me better separate work from play and find hobbies outside of programming. I met a lot of really wonderful people that I still talk to all the time.
Sadly Camp Grounded is on an indefinite hiatus. The founder passed away (rest in peace Fidget).
