If you are able to work from home, it can still feel daunting and overwhelming, especially for those who aren't used to working remotely or are juggling work with looking after the kids. Not to mention the difficulty in getting into "work-mode" from the comfort of your sofa.
Well, what if I told you could now work from a remote location, leaving all your troubles at home? Bermuda is the newest location opening its doors up to some very lucky people.
Read on to find out how you could get there and for how much...
Working from home can be easier said than done.Given the fact that it might be difficult to head into the office, there can be a huge temptation to sit on the sofa in your PJs, the computer on your lap with the TV on for "background noise" (which you're definitely looking at more than your laptop screen).
Not to mention if you throw kids into the mix.With schools across the globe closing, some parents are having to entertain their kids while working remotely. No, thank you.
All of this put together can feel a little overwhelming.And leaves many of us questioning how the heck we can be just as productive at home as we would be in the office.
Well, don't panic...There are a few things that you can do to make your life more exciting including switching up your location entirely.
Of course, we have the usual stuff like getting dressed...It might sound obvious but sitting in your PJs isn't going to make you all that productive.
And keeping in regular contact with your colleagues.These are the people you are used to spending a lot of your time with, therefore, working from home can quickly begin to feel pretty lonely. Keep in regular contact either through online video call meetings or group chats even if it's just for five to ten minutes each day.
Some of us have even tried home workouts while we're working!
And let me tell you, "taking regular breaks" is not working like it used to...It's getting a little boring now...
So why not add a little excitement back into your life by switching up your location completely?

I know, I know, it sounds a little bold, right?

Rather than staring at the same ol' walls of your home, you could be sitting on the beach sipping a mimosa.

Bermuda is trying to kick-start their tourism industry by making this once-in-a-lifetime offer.
via: Getty ImagesThey are now offering year-long stays for those of us who are free to work remotely.
And it's pretty simple to apply...

Bermuda’s minister of labor, Jason Hayward said this in his statement:

All of this while helping to boost the island's economy? Sign me up.

Their borders opened for international visitors on July 12th.

Sandy beaches, blue waters and clear skies, what more could you ask for?These users are already planning to go to Bermuda.
And given the current state of our country, I think now would be the best time to jump ship.
