How a Workation Can Increase Productivity

By | Digital Nomad, Javea, Productivity, Remote Worker, Travel | No Comments

With today technology and the increasing number of people becoming location independent, the old idea of taking a vacation to disconnect in order to reboot your productivity just doesn’t make sense anymore.

Instead, a workation might be the solution to make you more productive and focused on your work, whether you are a freelance, entrepreneur, or a company’s employee.

What Is a Workation and Why You Should Try It

Workation (literally work + vacation) is something more than just casually checking emails while you travel. It means actually fully immersing yourself in your work, while also dedicating time to unwind and relax, exploring a new environment, trying new things, meeting new people etc.

There’s no doubt that spending time in a different environment can make you feel more inspired and come up with innovative ideas and solutions for your work. We see this every day at Sun and Co., with our guests choosing to take a workation with us to escape winter in their home countries or spend time in beautiful Javea. After two or three weeks they all go back feeling better at way they do.

This being said, there are a few rules you should follow for a real productive workation.

Surround Yourself With Like-Minded People

When you go on workation, it’s important that you take your working mood with you. Having people around you that are also on a mission to immerse themselves in work helps a lot when it comes to motivation and not getting off the course.

Set Expectations

Before you leave for your workation, make sure that both yourself and everyone else (coworkers, clients, travel companions etc.) understands that working is actually going to be the main focus of your trip. Setting the right expectations means avoiding disappointment when sometimes you will have to stay inside and work on some urgent task, instead of going out to enjoy the sunny weather and beautiful spanish beaches. But it also means that your clients or coworkers back home won’t freak out when you’re not responding to an email straight away. Of course you will, you are not just on holiday!

Choose Your Accommodation Wisely

The place you stay will play a great role when it comes to your productivity, so it’s important to make sure you get all of these things:

A good internet connection;

A desk you can sit and work at;

An environment that is quite and peaceful, but also has places and activities nearby for when you want to change your setting or go explore.

Places like Sun and Co. offer all these three and much more, which is why coliving with us makes our guests always feeling super productive!

Establish a routine

From day one, try to set yourself a schedule and stick to it throughout your workation. Having the same schedule every day will help you stay organised, plan your time more effectively, and avoid pushing things off for later. Here are some of our favourite apps for an extra help on stay productive.

Stay in the same place for the entire trip

Traveling from one place to another not only takes time, but it also requires a lot of energy. Besides, If you’re traveling somewhere new every 3-7 days you won’t be able to fully take in the area, which on the long run will make you feel lonely and disconnected.  2-6 weeks is ideal for workationing and it will give you enough time to get used to the new environment, find a spot you can work, establish a routine and ultimately do good work.

When you’re looking for your next destination, the town that you’re headed to is just as important as where you’ll be staying. When researching where to visit next, odds are, you spend hours on the internet looking to find all there is to do and see. Javea is one of the towns that is a must while in Spain, not just because of the community and connection that we have here at Sun and Co. but for all of the beauty that the coastal paradise has to offer. If you’re looking for what to do while in Javea, keep reading.

We’ve heard time and time again that Javea is everyone’s favorite getaway where they can go to be productive, relax and disconnect from the intensity and mundane routine of everyday life. While there is an array of things you can do in Javea, Spain, we’re going to share three things you can do if you’re looking to relax a bit more while you’re here.

Indulge at La Siesta

La Siesta Javea is one of our favorite places in town because you’re able to have an island like experience on the coast of Spain. The restaurant is right on the water and it has more than just good food, but also an amazing ambiance. You’ll feel as if you’re transported to another world as you listen to the sea with music is playing in the background, all over a good meal or drink. With an extensive menu and friendly hosts, you’ll be sure to find yourself always wanting to come back for more. Whether you head there with a group of friends or by yourself, it’s the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the views.

 

Get Pampered at Daly Bioty Estetica

Daly Bioty Estetica is a hammam and spa that is located close to the Javea port. If you’re looking for somewhere to be pampered and disconnect, this is for you. You have the options of getting a spa treatment, massage, exfoliations, and even feeling cleansed in the steam room. With reasonable prices, you can make a day out of it and really feel like royalty at a reasonable price.

 

Watch The Sunset From a Lighthouse

For many of the people in our community, the best way to disconnect is by being out in nature. Luckily, Javea is a town that has the perfect balance of mountain and sea, allowing for beautiful hikes with breathtaking views. If you’ve ever been to Javea, odds are, at night you can see the light from the lighthouse illuminating the sea but did you know that you can also hike to the location.

We recommend taking an evening to hike up to Faro Cabo San Antonio to watch the sunset. The hike can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours but it’s worth it. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the fresh air, slow down and take in the views from the top.
