I recently visited family in a semi-remote area of Montana. Remote enough that author Max Brooks deems it as one of the only safe zones for people in the zombie apocalypse novel, World War Z. This wasn’t a vacation, though. I did my normal work routine and clocked my normal hours, but they felt different. I felt less stressed, unrushed, and for the first time in a while I could honestly say I was “going with the flow.” I realized it was because I wasn’t being distracted by a device or screen every other second. I was only there for about a week, but I left wanting to take some of it with me. Here are the things I learned and how you can find your own peaceful cabin without leaving home.
