A Workation from Zanzibar
The ‘work from home’ concept has never gained more traction in South Africa than in the last year. With Covid health protocols of utter importance and a total lockdown imposed on the country, employers all over had to hastily reprioritize and set up remote work stations for their staff.
Many office and even call-center employees have been working from home for a number of months now, and have all begun to see the benefits; if not of full-time remote working, then at least for a few days a week.
But if you can work from home, surely you can work from any home or location with suitable WiFI. So why not combine work with some much needed R&R? Take advantage of your new circumstances and take a break while keeping to your full work schedule. Working from home has the advantage of less interruptions and a saving of many hours sitting in the daily traffic. So why not work and travel in 2021?
A Zanzibar holiday is the ideal location for a workation! Leave Johannesburg in the morning and you will be settled into your hotel with your laptop or tablet in the afternoon. Then spend the rest of the day checking out the hotel facilities and enjoying a swim in the warm Indian Ocean before dinner under the stars.
Set your routine for the next 7 days. This might include an early jog on the beach, a swim and healthy breakfast. Then set to work with the compelling incentive of a swim at noon followed by a light lunch on the beach to ensure you are fresh for the afternoon session. Nothing could beat this for efficiency as someone else is doing the housekeeping and cooking irresistible meals while you get on with your productive workcation! What could be better?
