How traveling to Bali gave me my creativity back, empowered my team and rid me of decision fatigue.
Traveling alone is something I have never done before. I did not go to college, and my “Euro-trip” after high-school graduation was with my grandmother, so not exactly the kind of trip you take to get lost in the world by yourself. Travel is the best way to stay creative, and tons of studies agree, so why is it so hard for people to take time away from work?
After the ups and downs of this past year, I realized the healthiest thing for me was to take a few days off and re-charge my creativity. I’ve always felt great about my ability to dream up interesting and out of the box ideas, but I had been coming up flat lately, and it was time for a big change.
