Our Tips for Working From a Vacation Home
1. Create a Designated Workspace
If you’re working from home, it’s a good idea to designate a workspace. You’ll want to be sure that you have all of your work materials, it’s comfortable, and it’s away from all the distractions. Also, make sure that it’s in an area that has a strong WiFi connection. With Harris Vacation Rentals, all our vacation homes are equipped with high-speed WiFi. Some larger rental properties have two routers for added strength and speed.
2. Set Working Hours
While working remotely, it has been proven that setting work hours and creating a routine for yourself will increase productivity. Set your alarm every day and start and end your workday at the same time. Be sure to schedule in time to eat lunch and take a break from time to time. It’s essential to clear your mind, so consider taking a stroll on the beach or breathing in some fresh air on your balcony or deck.
3. Make Time To Relax and Have Fun
After the workday has ended, spend time with family and be sure to enjoy your vacation. Planning after-work activities gives you something to look forward to and will make your day fly by faster. All our vacation homes are located throughout Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, and Orange Beach and keep you close to the area’s best attractions, restaurants, and outdoor. Plus, many of our properties offer private pools, fully-functional kitchens, and spacious living areas, so you don’t even have to leave if you prefer to stay home.
