Many people take a vacation from the office. Some leave for two weeks, others only go on Fridays, but now there is something new: workcations!
For those who are able to balance their work and play, a workcation is the perfect option. The concept entails temporarily relocating to a vacation rental in a destination location, working normal hours, and then enjoying what the location has to offer after work and on weekends!
The recent wave of workcations means people are starting to get creative as they travel and live out their dreams while working remotely from places like Anchor Bay where you can enjoy warm sunsets on beaches with your loved ones without sacrificing vacation days or work progress!
Here are 5 tips for a Successful Workcation
1. Work is still the priority
Make sure you plan around your work schedule to get everything you need to do finished. That way you stay ahead and can actually enjoy the location during your downtime rather than having what you need to do on your mind :)
2. Check the connectivity before going
Make sure to stay in a vacation rental with good cell service, internet connection, desk, chair, and anything else you need to stay productive during your work hours! Checking these factors ahead of time will keep things stress-free! Wander has complete state-of-the-art workstations and fast wifi, so you can know you’ll be covered.
4. Stay focused with a workspace
Make sure to take work calls in quiet places, and keep your meetings. The idea is to be able to enjoy locations without compromising professionalism or productivity. Ideally choosing a location that has a desk for you will keep you on task. When you sit down at a spot designated for work, it will help you stay on task.
Stick to the same routine that keeps you productive at home. This includes enough sleep, meal times, and exercise. If you need 8 hours of sleep at home, you'll still need them while on a workcation.
Nothing beats finishing a productive day at work and then enjoying some R&R in a beautiful ocean view location. With some proper planning, you can have the best of both worlds!
