Workcations combine work and vacation, such as booking a mountain cabin for a week while working a full-time job remotely. While it may seem counter-intuitive, experts argue that we've adapted sufficiently during the pandemic to reap the benefits.

Before the pandemic, some white-collar workers already took advantage of bleisure travel, travel that combines business trips with leisure trips.

What is different now is that more people can take advantage of workcations. Workers can now have some downtime in a great environment and fit in a different pattern of days; taking longer over lunch, breaking earlier.

In a survey of 1,000 people who took a workcation, 80% felt the trip had increased their productivity and creativity and helped them recharge their mental and emotional batteries.

Capitalising on flexibility

Capitalising on flexibility

The popularity of workcations may seem at odds with the idea that we should separate work and play. But experts see bleisure and workcations as an example of work-life integration, a more realistic concept than striving for 'work-life balance', where work and life are in competition.

The main attraction to combining work and play is the flexibility it presents. Workers can decide how, where and when they want to incorporate leisure time in their work.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
