MAKE TIME FOR LOVE —

I love the good­morn­ing and good-night check-in with the girl­friend. Hav­ing ded­i­cated check-in times when you travel re­minds ev­ery­one that the re­la­tion­ship mat­ters. Tech­nol­ogy makes it so easy. When you’re on the road, fig­ure out a five-minute slot when time zones work for ev­ery­one and FaceTime or Skype.

PUT EMAIL IN ITS PLACE —

Many peo­ple check and an­swer email all day. This wastes time when you tog­gle back and forth be­tween activities. If you can’t con­fine email to one block, at least try to check and an­swer no more than once every 90 to 120 min­utes. Earth will not crash into the sun if you don’t check your email for 90 min­utes.

BIG NIGHT LIGHT

Fall­ing asleep by TV tends to keep you up too late. Alexis should dive back into that book from the plane. It’s a bet­ter way to wind down and get more sleep.
