Millennials or, as the previous generation knows them, “sons and daughters,” have the problem and the advantage of living perpetually connected to the world. This has also permeated through to all the generations living with them in the world today.
Especially now that all of us spend more than 40 hours interacting with each other, even with people sitting next to us in the office. Arguably, we are interacting less sometimes with “real” people.
Many of us are slaves to our phones and computers, but at the moment of deciding to take a well-deserved vacation, we have to decide to turn off the notifications, too.
Here’s how, in a few simple steps:
- Plan your vacation days. Planning your rest and relaxation days is important so that you’re also very aware of projects, delivery times and scheduled meetings.
- Let people know you’re going on vacation. It can be very difficult for some to let projects they are working on go, but it’s important so nothing interrupts your “sacred” days.
- Establish a schedule for checking in. Once your vacation is here, it may be impossible to stop checking the status of many projects, however, you can set up a time to catch up.
- Put your work groups on “mute”. WhatsApp groups can help you plan lunch or coffee dates with people you don’t see very often, but they can also stress you out. It’s important to respect your time off.
- Have fun in a place that allows it. Some hotels won’t let you enjoy your vacation fully because of strict and particular rules; however, if you visit a place like Happy Address, your vacation will be made to fit your needs and not the other way around.
Let us help you find a way to disconnect from everyday stress and have fun like never before.
