Did you know that there are scientific reasons to get away?  Reasons that show that changing one’s environment can be a huge factor in stress reduction and an increase creativity.  Given that notion, the best item to pack in your suitcase when you do take off may in fact be your work.  We at women’s workation certainly agree and have found this to be true and want to share our list of 20 reasons to take off with you.

We travel because we need to,
Because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity.
When we get home, home is still the same,
But something in our mind has been changed, and that changes everything.

~Jonah Lehrer

Life Work Balance Take 2

Incorporating your life into your work certainly makes sense for entrepreneurs.  We have all heard the saying work life balance and a huge push on balancing one’s life but this can be quite difficult for solopreneurs.  This is even the case for people holding full time employment positions/contracts as technology keeps us all plugged in nearly all the time.  When full time employees take off, they usual are just putting their workload on hold and then have to make up this lost time either before or after their time away.  For some, checking in for a few minutes or an hour a day may in fact reduce stress while away.   Whether you are an entrepreneur, work full time or have a project these reasons are only a few why it is so important to get away.

Top 20 Reasons to Take Off

This is about remembering to soak up the sun, smell the flowers and laugh.  When we do that, we are more able to focus on everything in our lives.

  1. Get out of your comfort zone, open yourself up to the world and new parts of yourself

  2. Brainstorm with other entrepreneurs in the sun, in the sand and in the sea

  3. Learn to be more adaptable and find creative ways to overcome obstacles

  4. Escape the damp grey weather and the freezing winter months

  5. Eat fresh local ceviche and mouth watering tacos
