Threshold for Contact
Everyone has their own way, but I think the key is to truly "get away," and there are two requirements:
1) Maximally reduce your own "at risk" behaviors such as checking email, voice mail, or checking in.
2) Have a confidante "on the ground" who clearly understands the issues and your point of view AND who has a pact with you for a "threshold for contact." That threshold is based on trust and experience and can actually be fairly high for a week or two absence.
To unwind you not only have to truly get away, but you also need the peace of mind that issues will be properly managed -- including contact initiated when truly essential.
