Why a workation?
A workation has many benefits for yourself but also for your employer. You rest better, experience less stress and you can arrange your workday flexibly. Moreover, you will return home with more energy, a new dose of positivity and with lots of inspiration.
It is also possible to go on a workation with your family, when you are done with your working day, then you join them.
During a workation, you don’t have to do housework, you don’t have to do any shopping, and you certainly don’t get distracted by normal daily activities. That makes you experience a new kind of focus. The hours you work are immediately more qualitative than at home. New stimuli often provide new ideas and additional motivation. If you have lost your concentration for a while, you can soak up some culture or lie down by the pool to recharge.

What is a workation and what are the benefits?
Workation is all about combining work and vacation. Working on vacation used to be frowned upon, now more and more employees are discovering that the benefits of this combination are very positive.
The great thing about a workation is: you don’t have to give up vacation days at all. After all, you will be working neatly during this holiday. You transport yourself to a place where you both work and spend your holidays.
Another advantage of having your own working holiday is that you are less distracted by all kinds of appointments that you would have at home. That saves time and provides a lot of focus. Of course, it’s also a lot of fun! After work, or during your break, you can explore the new environment.
One of the main reasons to work remotely during your vacation is that you don’t have to take time off. Although you should of course discuss it with your boss, there are many jobs nowadays with very flexible options.
The benefits of combining work and vacation include increased productivity and creativity. Without the distractions of colleagues, other things you have to do or noise in the workplace, you can concentrate much better while working.
Another advantage is the fact that a workation can cause you to completely change your mindset. When you work on vacation instead of at the office, you can really enjoy life much more. With the sound of the waves coming ashore, a day’s work really feels a lot more pleasant.
