2020 has been a year of unexpected circumstances across the globe. From East to West, people have been looking at their lives through a new lens and trying to find routes to working through ever-changing scenarios and daunting dilemmas. All of this has been done all attempting to balance the stress that inevitably comes along with working to keep families and friends connected while maintaining new and essential safety standards.

In many ways, it’s been a year of trying to find the beauty in the chaos. Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects for many employed individuals during this unprecedented time has been the necessary transition from office life to working remotely from home. With the disappearance of the office desk came the immediate need to create a workspace in a home environment that wasn’t necessarily set up to handle the technological or physical requirements to be productive. Finding the mindset at home to get into the work zone can be challenging as well. For those that have children to attend to, the struggle is only heightened to a new level.

Still, if we were to step back and pick out that bright spot in all of the unexpected thrown our way in 2020, it just might be that overlooked freedom that comes with remote working—particularly as its related to the option to travel. When you can work from just about anywhere, no place is off-limits! Renting a Santa Barbara vacation rental in a place that inspires you during the day, is equipped with everything you’ll need to get work done while offering up fun once the assignments for the day are complete is an amazing and very reachable experience.

When you’re looking for that place to make it happen—Santa Barbara, California is calling your name.
