What happens when you worry that you have too much work to take time away for a proper vacation? If you are like most people, you push away the idea of a vacation and put your nose back to the grindstone. However, this is not healthy. You do need to take some time to relax and unwind. You need to have the occasional vacation. However, it is entirely understandable that it’s not always possible to take care of all of the work before you head out the door and throw on your swimsuit.

Instead of choosing one over the other, some professionals are finding ways to add some work time to their vacation. It’s important that you make sure you balance it the right way though. It should tip the scales toward more fun time and less work time as much as possible.

Set Aside the Time

If you know you will have to work a bit while on vacation, it is important that you are honest with your travel companions. Let them know that you will need to spend an hour or slightly more each day on work duties if that’s the case. They can do something else while you are working, and you can get together later. Make sure that you are able to finish the work in the allotted time, and never take so much with you that it becomes the only thing you do while on vacation.

You can answer emails, take a phone or Skype meeting, and take care of some basic paperwork. Cloud computing makes it easy to give your input on projects and to update them in real time without the hassle of making sure you are working on the same files.

Put limits on the amount of work that you will do. Never let it become the focus of your vacation. Try to limit the amount of work you do to less than an hour. If you can, wake up an hour earlier than everyone else and take care of it before everyone starts their day.

Have Time for Fun

Is working on vacation ideal? Not at all, and it is something you will want to avoid whenever possible. However, it’s better to take your vacation and work for an hour a day in the morning than to forego your time away completely. Set aside plenty of time for fun with family and friends, and when you aren’t working, don’t think about it or talk about it. The vacation needs to be a time when you can relax and connect with your loved ones.

Hopefully, you will not have to take your work with you when you go on vacation. However, if you do, make sure that you are capable of balancing it properly. Whether you are working or not, consider getting a timeshare. It provides you with more space, so you can set up a work area that’s separate from where everyone else will be. This is impossible in most hotels.
