There was once a world where people had to go to work every single day. In this world, you spend your regular 9-5 work hours in a building staring at monochrome walls, laptops, and sipping coffee off mugs dedicated to working hours.
Imagine telling your kids this post COVID, and all it has turned the work system into. They probably won’t be able to picture it. You probably would have a hard time recalling it too.
The COVID outbreak showed that many office tasks could be carried out outside the workstation. This also brought to the awareness that a lot of operational costs could be shaved off by having your staff work from home. On one end, it is brilliant. The company saves more and the staff gets the option of avoiding tedious traffic systems by doing what they would have otherwise done in the office from home. Many organizations stuck to this routine, while some revived a hybrid structure where some days are spent working from the office, and other days from home.
The flipside, however, is in the peak of the outbreak, working from home became suffocating. It is different when your hours are spent amidst colleagues with a collection of daily tales and trends, but at home, it is you and yourself for company. That got old really fast.
Being that productivity is largely connected to mental wellness, one of the best ways to revamp your mental state of mind even while working is by going on workations. Office workers bought into the idea rapidly.
Workations are a merge of work and vacations. It is carrying out tasks you would have done from the office in places of leisure.
This takes a considerable amount of planning, and hotels, cafes, and resorts also put structures in place to aid the idea. For instance, some hotels offer check-ins as early as 8 am and check-outs as late as 6 pm; the work hours duration.
Some resorts have workation packages at affordable costs. You can take spa breaks, or take a walk on lush grounds to stretch your legs, and get your creative juices flowing before going back to work.
Some cafes have isolated booths that allow seamless working in a quiet and cozy ambiance.
Some travel organizations curate workation packages that allow you to network, have fun and get work done with all the necessary work facilities needed outside of the work environment. You can speak to us to TBAH to organize one for you .
All these packages and provisions ensure that one can avoid the monotony that comes with working from home, and also make work a pleasurable activity. And as a person, you only need to pack lightly, plan ahead to revel in all the wonders the experience of a workation provides.
