Plan an itenary almost 2-3 months in advance.
Though travel right now is on a halt, you can still plan your vacation once things are better. Usually, I am a person who likes to travel every 3-4 months. Usually we plan our travel around the time of kids holidays. We do extensive research on where to go, how to go, how to manage the travel.
With prior planning, I know tentative dates and information about my travel and hence I can keep team informed about my travel in advance. I can plan my work and schedules in advance so that the work does not get affected in my absence.
Also, since the dates of my leave are already known in advance, no one anticipates work from my end during that time.
How to take a break
There are many options available if you want to take a break from your Hectic Work Schedule. You can take a long vacation and visit new places or you can opt for a smaller vacation or break and travel to your hometown. If that is not possible just take a break of a day or two to relax and get yourself back together.
Make Travel a Priority
