It’s healthy to get out of town for more than just a few weeks of vacation each year. In this article, we’ll discuss how to do that and keep your job.
The recent global health crisis and social isolation took a toll on my and my wife’s mental and physical health, and we needed an escape. So, shortly after travel restrictions were lifted in our area, we took a “workcation” (work + vacation). We drove from New York to Boston and enjoyed several days of great food and activities — without any risk to our incomes.
We’ve had numerous workcations since then, but this one was special because it kept us from going insane when it felt like the whole world was crazy. Today, workcations continue to help us to maintain our sanity and avoid burnout in a remote-first environment.
