In the United States, there is no federal or state minimum annual leave law that requires employers to provide paid or unpaid vacation days. In a culture that often prioritizes work over family and relaxation time, it’s no wonder that significant numbers of Americans do not take all of their allotted vacation days, even if they only get a week! If you’re someone who feels as if you can’t take time away from a demanding job, maybe it’s time to think about a working vacation.
Working Vacation (noun): Time away from your typical work space in which you plan to both take some time to relax and to work remotely on a more limited basis. A balancing act that requires the expertise of tightrope walker, but is possible!
How to Plan a Working Vacation:
I won’t lie to you: working vacations are hard. If it’s difficult to balance work and personal life at home, it can be even more challenging on vacation. It is possible though, and with thorough planning, things can get even smoother. When you’re ready to get some distance from work without disconnecting entirely, contact me.
