(SPOT.ph) Working from home for months on end can take a toll on your well-being. The "always on" culture, where you answer texts/chats/e-mails on every online platform you have, isn't making it easy either. You start work as soon as you get off bed because your "office" is just there, and you get off late in the evening because you're expected to finish a load of the day's task. If you want to finally use your vacation responder, you can check in at private accommodations and forget all about your busy life—at least for a while.
