Are you someone who loves collaborating two words and come up with a new one? Well, good news for you! A new portmanteau trend is doing rounds on the internet. After honeymoon and babymoon now we have Jobbymoon!
What exactly is this Jobbymoon? And why should you care?
Jobbymoon is a vacation you take to exorcise the impressions of your previous job. It is the gap between two jobs. It’s marking of the point between leaving one path and beginning with another. This is a great way to unbend the relaxation-starved workers who are running the race of earning money and overwork.
For the high achieving and organised unemployed person that you are, embarking on a new journey promptly is your topmost priority. But before rushing over to the next job and surrounding yourself with insurmountable stress, have a look at the benefits of taking a Jobbymoon.
Recharge with nothingness
Recharging yourself does not always mean doing something. According to the health experts, doing nothing and being unengaged leads to detoxifying of mind. It is like emptying the clutter to make space for the new useful things. On a Jobbymoon, you are absolutely unoccupied with the workload and give your mental self some healing and some energy to prepare for the next voyage.
An actual break
Do not mistake Jobbymoon for bizcation (business and vacation) or bleisure (business and leisure) where you are occupied with your work even on a vacation, dealing with all the work calls and responsibilities. It is better not to roll into the new job with the heavy baggage from the previous one because this is the time where you are free from the past and hold no accountability for the one you haven’t joined yet.
Bucket list time finally
Has there come a time when you must have always dreamt of taking some days off and go on a trip you always longed for, but the work-life monster always held you back in your office chair? Well not anymore. No agonising over your work stress, this is the time you head to that destination and not regret the decision at all. Tick that bucket list off and collect those holiday pictures for your new cubical!
Now going over your mistakes and faults and learning from them needs time. By analysing your achievements; things you learnt in the journey which you can take further and won’t let you ruin your future. All these assessing of priorities can be done once you are away from all the responsibilities and readying yourself for the next one.
A break from your laptops, fax machines and cell phones for calls and emails gives you the peace of no tasks on the mind. This alleged emerging trend does not have to be months or days long, you can pick up a weekend to do the tasks, leisure activities or bustle on an adventurous pursuit which has been luring you since ages. It can be lazying in your favourite resort, leaping into a valley with bungee jumping, parasailing like a bird, swimming with the sea turtles or just relaxation and recreation at a beach with a spa.
