Business travellers tend to have very busy and hectic schedules that everything seems to only be about the professional side of the trip. Executives may experience different difficulties that would make travelling a hassle when coupled with the fact that they only have a limited amount of time available in their travel destination.
A lot of business owners spend 90% of their time on their businesses resulting in almost no time for pleasure. A new trend, however, came when millennials became executives which allowed them to optimise their time and enjoy by combining business with leisure which led to “Bleisure.”
Bleisure, however, is unattainable when you’re struggling with jet lag that has effects that lead to travel burnout. Negative travel experiences resulted from not being able to make the most of your limited free time during the business travel which would discourage the traveller from going on another trip. Optimising a business trip is a must for you to enjoy while working.
1. Striving for Bleisure
Optimising travelling for bleisure means identifying leisure activities and planning well, consulting your company’s corporate travel policy to reap some benefits including discounts, signing up for free perks, and exploring nearby places.
Since many business travellers are extending their stay in the countries they visited, they have a chance to enjoy the sights and the accommodations to make their trip worthwhile. Extending the time spent on the ground also allows the executive to explore ways to strengthen the relationship between their companies and their clients while engaging in leisure activities.
2. Fighting the Jet Lag
Jet lag hinders an executive from working efficiently, enjoying, and staying healthy which leads to fatigue and burnout. The symptoms of jet lag include insomnia, loss of appetite, a depressed mood, an upset stomach, fatigue, and mental fuzziness which hamper an individual from functioning well.
Preparing for the jet lag frees up your schedule in the country you’re visiting by eliminating the necessity of nursing yourself back to health. Getting sufficient rest before your trip abroad sets up your first line of defence in fighting the jet lag.
Your gadgets emit blue light which suppresses a sleep hormone, thus, making it challenging to sleep; avoiding smartphones and laptops is an inefficient option for a business trip but wearing blue-blocking glasses, installing filters on both phone and computer, and turning down the brightness minimises the amount of blue light transmitted to you.
3. Hiring a Chauffeur
Hiring a luxury chauffeur service goes beyond your safety and security as it helps you save time going from place to place. The benefits of having a chauffeur are that you won’t have to worry about being late for your flight and meetings and that you won’t have to worry about getting lost which could happen if you go alone.
If you happen to miss some work or you only need some rest before or after a business meeting, then you can save time by doing either on your chauffeur’s luxury car and carry on with your leisure afterwards. Resting in the comfortable vehicle of your hired chauffeur minimises the effects of jet lag and lets you enjoy the rest of your trip.
Optimising your business trip and maximising limited time is possible only when you’re healthy and when your mode of transportation is efficient in avoiding delays.
