Humankind is dependent on cities for various social, economic, and physical needs. Income and employment are the leading causes of urbanisation, as more people settle in cities. They get more work-oriented over time, rendering cities as mere job-centrals. The new condition of the urban population follows the way of the grind.
The new work-intensive lifestyle has a detrimental effect on the well-being of humans. To relieve themselves of the pressures of the job, people look for opportunities to escape, and travel to scenic destinations to relax and rejuvenate themselves.
The commercialisation of cities has overpowered the social and psychological needs of humans. The turn of the 21st century has seen a rise in the trend of remote working. Technological infrastructure enables people to work from remote locations and hit their targets at their own leisure and pace. As the travel-work trend is gaining traction recently.
In what ways has the new work-life dynamic altered or influenced our lifestyle choices?
CHANGE IN TRAVELS TRENDS AND DURATION
Travel provides a necessary break from the exhausting life people lead in cities. Vacations, in the past, were taken to countryside retreats just outside the city, for short durations. But with the new online mode of working, people have flexibility with their work location and can undertake trips for a longer period of time. This gives them a chance to explore the new city, live there and be a part of the local daily life. In any travel, accommodation is the foremost priority. The travel-work populace has specific requirements when it comes to their stay arrangements. Since work will be a major part of their daily activities, a productive workspace setting is required. Stay quarters will promote comfort, leisure as well as effectiveness.
Hotels provide premium accommodation on a day-to-day basis, which could be unaffordable or unfit for people planning long-term living and working. New options of rental homes and hostels are becoming popular for serving people with such a specific mindset. Affordability is a key, with no compromise on space quality to inspire efficiency.
