In this episode, I talk to you about the most exciting discovery I’ve made in my business in the past year. It’s not always easy to find time to work, but scheduling workcations can totally turn your work time from zero to 60 (literally) in the click of a “book now” button.
A Traditional Workcation
Pre-pandemic, booking a workcation was the equivalent of an actual vacation. It’s no secret I love to create for TPT, so anytime I sensed a big project coming up, I’d book a hotel for a few nights. Weird, right?
Even weirder that I booked the same hotel every time and it was only 5 minutes from my house. While this might seem odd, it actually allowed me to get work done in a totally quiet, focused space. At the same time, I was close enough to my husband and kids to have the peace of mind that I could be home in a moment’s notice if there was an emergency.
Workcations, 2020 Style
Along came a virus
Unfortunately, my days of hotel stays came to an abrupt stop with a pandemic. While this was disappointing, like everything this year, I’ve found a way to improvise. I now schedule workcations at the fancy, luxurious location of…my mom’s dining room. Yep.
I am fortunate to have my mom an hour away, and every month or so I stay with her for a few days. She still works, so it gives me the peace and privacy during the day and the company and “treat myself” mindset at night.
Planning Your Workcation
Sometimes, planning is more fun than actually going through with a plan. In the event of workcations, I’d say planning and executing are equal. I recommend packing your favorite treats and snacks, your coziest clothes, and of course all of the necessary gadgets.
It’s crucial that I go into a workcation with a clear plan that doesn’t feel too overwhelming but will also leave me feeling hugely accomplished. My goal for every workcation is to come home well-rested with a clear mind so I can enjoy my family instead of worrying about work projects that have been nagging me.
