Thanks to the pandemic, our concept of where and how we work has forever changed. Perhaps, for the better. But how can one juggle work-life balance while keeping isolation fatigue at bay? After all, most remote workers clock in, eat and sleep in the same location. There’s no commute, no water cooler conversation, and cafeteria lunch breaks — simply feeding an inner dialogue of cabin fever. Instead, time to self on weekends, dusk and dawn, or even lunch breaks pushes burnout down to the back burner while actively rejuvenating. Here’s how moving to work remote in Belize helps quiet the daily grind.

Working From Home, Abroad

Take Vitamin D for example. Known as the “sunshine” vitamin, researchers behind a 2013 meta-analysis noticed that study participants with depression also had low vitamin D levels. The same analysis found that, statistically, people with low vitamin D were at a much greater risk of depression. Additionally, the researchers believe that because vitamin D is important to healthy brain function, insufficient nutrient levels may play a role in depression and other mental illnesses. So why not work from home abroad? Sun seekers can quite literally report increased productivity, among other benefits.

So by moving to remote work, people were given a taste of a new way to live. Work became more flexible, and the idea of offices with florescent lights and constraining cubicles now feels increasingly dated. Besides being less of a cost to the employer, even shared office spaces are pricey to the employed; yep, they’re not free, and why would you pay £600 a month to hire a desk when you could just use that money for an entire Caribbean dwelling to work elsewhere? Now, workers can work while enjoying life at a level the average person has never experienced before. In Belize, there’s a quintessential time zone of “go slow,” perhaps characteristic of our Caribbean side. Ready to make your move to work remote in Belize and experience it for yourself?
