It’s no secret that North American workers aren’t taking vacations. In fact, according to TIME magazine, 169 million vacation days are not used and aren’t even carried over. They’re pretty much wasted and thrown into the garbage.
Whether it’s due to exorbitant costs of taking a vacation or fears of returning to our desks with a huge pile of paperwork, we prefer to just either stay put and do our jobs or take a staycation.
However, when we do take a vacation, the concept of work slowly creeps into our trips to the beach, a visit to a museum or when we cuddle up in our hotel bed. Unfortunately, we can’t escape work when we’re on vacation. One poll even found that one-third of millennials worked each day during their trip, and these findings are becoming a common trend.
The whole point of a vacation is to unwind, recuperate, relax and create new memories. Due to mobile technology, constant wifi access and greater demands from our employers, the old depiction of a holiday is entering the dustbins of history.
So, how do you still work while you travel without it actually ruining your holiday? We’ve got seven tips to make this possible.
