It’s the perfect storm out there. And no, we’re not just talking about that slushy travesty of a snow-globe happening outside your window. Between the increasingly poor weather, shorter days, and being trapped inside for longer periods of time, it’s a wonder that anybody can get out of bed in the morning. Add this to the fact that the holidays are coming, along with crazy end-of-year deadlines constantly dropping on your desk from your less-than-understanding boss, and it’s enough to leave anybody halfway between The Walking Dead and The Incredible Hulk. Can’t imagine what that looks like? It’s not pretty.
Overworking can lead to a number of negative side-effects on both your physical and psychological health. Besides the umbrella term of “burnout,” other un-pleasantries include irritability, poorer performance, depression, obesity, general emotional instability… you get the idea. Before you do something that has to involve a stern talking to from your HR department (or the police), maybe you should consider taking a vacation?
If you need a break from your boss that lasts longer than a coffee run or distractingly cute animal video, we may be able to help. We’ve scoured the internet looking for the season’s best holiday travel deals and have found an option that can get you out of the country, even if you’re on a budget. Expedia Canada is now allowing customers the option to either pay for their hotel when they book it, or they can choose pay when they are checking out instead.
While most North American hotels have traditionally asked that you pay in advance, waiting until checking out offers a number of benefits. Primarily, it can offer increased flexibility in extending your stay. Beyond this, if funds are a little tight after the holidays or you’re waiting for that end-of-year bonus, it can provide you a little more time to get your finances in order before your trip.
If you’re currently sitting bored at your desk, we’ve got the midday break you need. To emphasize their point, Expedia Canada has created a hilarious series of videos that capture those #AwkwardOfficeMoments with your boss that we all know and… well, we all know them.
Also, if you’re not sure where you’d like to go for your winter 2014 travel destination, may we suggest La Paz, Mexico, or Amanyara in Turks and Caicos? We recently visited them and are already missing the heat. Oh yes, and Expedia Canada can take you there!
