The Best Accommodation Options For Slow Travellers & Remote Workers.
What is Slow Travel? When travelling slow, you can take the time to get to know local villages and cities that you may usually miss out on when travelling to somewhere new for a week. Slow travel brings us back to the reasons why we travel.
Cheers! To Dry January
Last year was the first time I've stuck to a New Year's resolution (well a 31 day resolution), I completed Dry January with no problem at all. I don't know why I made a big deal out of it during previous years. I've managed a full 31 days without alcohol, so, cheers to that.
Avoid High Rent By Living In Airbnbs.

As time has passed, and this new reality has kicked in, it’s become more apparent that we must protect our time if we’re to avoid burnout. If you were not working remotely pre-covid, you may find yourself working more hours than you would in an office (in an attempt to ‘prove’ to you’re working), or you’re struggling to switch off from work because there’s nowhere else for you to be.
Disconnecting And Recharging As A Remote Worker
I love finding a constant flow of productivity, ticking tasks off my to-do list, and feeling energised during the working day; but I also know how important it is to take time to disconnect and recharge. Booking a week, or even a few days off, allows me to return to work feeling motivated and refreshed.
Mindless Scrolling — How To Help Yourself
You’ve been awake for at least 30 mins but you’re still in bed, scrolling through Instagram, emails, or Facebook — either way, none of it is needed. Before you know it SO much time has passed and you’ve learned nothing. You know you’ve been there, we all have.
Your Home Is Now Your Office…
Globally we’re all being affected by COVID-19 and many governments have issued guidelines encouraging everyone to avoid unnecessary contact and to self-isolate if they’re showing symptoms. With a rise in remote working as many offices close, it’s normal to develop feelings of loneliness or anxiety in this current, unknown, situation.
