Five Tips for Maximizing Productivity on Vacation

New research by the marketing firm Pertino reveals that 64 percent of men and 57 percent of women work on vacation. As the Fourth of the July is upon us, Steve Allen, author of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, shares how to do it right.

Prioritize beforehand

Create a temporary action list of things you absolutely need to do and be sure to put off the things that can wait until you get back. This is important: remember that as mosquitoes can ruin safaris, the dumb stuff can ruin your vacation. So don’t add any guilt.

Pack an 8-foot extension cord

You’ll need it to plug all your stuff in, and you don’t want to be crawling all over the floor looking for extra plugs that don’t exist. It needs to be long because the hotel room power outlet is usually on the other side of the room from the desk. Also, bring a UBS stick for printing anything important at the front desk.

“1. Drink less water — more often.
Your body is made up of more than 60 percent water. Because of the dry airplane cabin air, it’s easy to get dehydrated while flying across multiple time zones. To regulate itself appropriately, your body needs enough water throughout the day. For me, dehydration effects include headaches and disrupted sleeping patterns that can last through the next day.

When I say “less water,” I don’t mean in general, I mean all at once. Sip water along the way. I’ve seen too many of my cabin mates go on water binges. They don’t drink water (though they may have a couple of cocktails or glasses of wine), and then at the end of the flight, they chug a bottle of water, hoping it makes up for the hours in the air. But drinking a lot of water at once may make you feel bloated, even tricking your stomach into thinking you’re full, which could interfere with the nutrition you consume that first day of a trip.

I have a goal, no matter the length of the flight: four ounces of water an hour. The more regulated your body is, the easier it will be to handle jumping time zones and being productive while you’re abroad. The secondary benefit of this is that I have to get up to use the restroom during the flight — and stretching your legs is always good.”
