Leave digital behind. By digital I mean phone calls, text messages, tweets, web updates, whatever the reason is you keep looking at your phone. And by behind, I don't really mean behind. I mean turned off, in a hard pelican case, in a dry bag. OH! and put the dry bag in one of your hatches. If you need it you have it, but take the opportunity to disconnect. Have some time alone with your own thoughts. View the world around you, notice it changing. Have fun. You can tweet about it when you get home. Also, your cellphone is not a good camera for kayaking. Buy something waterproof so when you need your phone its battery is still charged and the phone isn't a soaking wet phone shaped brick.
