If possible, don’t work while on vacation. It’s a vacation and you are there to enjoy.
However, if you still need to work while on vacation, it is possible to do so without destroying your vacation or annoying your partner.
Stay away from the work
As I said, if it is possible don’t work when you are on vacation. If it is possible to unplug totally, do so. It is most likely that you went with the vacation idea because you have planned everything. You have planned about your absence from the work the same duration while you’ll be on vacation. If that is the case, you have already planned not to work, so stick to that.
Set Aside Specific time
If it is important that you work for some time, then the best way to do so is to set aside some specific time for your work. If you are working with anyone else or collaborating on any project, let your co-workers know about that specific block of time when you will be available. Don’t stretch yourself beyond the specific limit.
Do only basic works
Keep away from stressing work during the specific time you have set aside. Only do the basic works and do not involve in works that consume lots of your time. You can work on basic tasks like checking your email, making a few phone calls or checking status of your project et cetera. If necessary, you can delegate work to someone else.
Get better internet
Very slow Internet connection can not only drain your time but can also drain your life energy. If you know that the place where you are going, you will have only slow speed Internet connection, then make sure to arrange something from your side. You may arrange for an Internet connection device, make your phone an Internet hub, get a wireless hotspot or get a tethering plan so that you have Internet with a good speed. If you’re selecting a hotel, then select the one with the best Internet connection.
All you need is a little bit of planning and you can not only enjoy but also get done what is important for you.
