Palm Coast, Florida This is the place for people who love dramatic natural settings. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway about 35 minutes south of St. Augustine, this golden-sand state park is rocky―covered with coquina, or sand” that is actually made of crushed shells. Three- to 4-foot boulders of compressed coquina dot the beach. Each rock looks as if it were sculpted by a trained hand. About the time the Shaver Dam was completed, in 1928, John Harshman came to Shaver Lake from Ohio to fish. Since the fishing was pretty good, he decided to stay. But more than a fisherman, he was quite a pioneer and entrepreneur and started several businesses, all in one small building called the Trading Post. Eventually he had a grocery store, restaurant, soda fountain, meat market, post office and a gas station. The Trading Post is still there as a restaurant and bar and is a favorite of both locals and vacationers.

Detachment also requires being able to escape work-related interruptions. Employees who carry their work smartphones or other devices during non-work hours or who must keep in touch with the office while on vacation show higher levels of stress and work-family conflict. A study of the cortisol levels of on-call workers found a negligible difference between their stress and alertness levels when they were at work and when they were on call. Likewise, people who worry about work in their off hours have lower recovery rates than those who do not.
