Do you know the paradox of choice? The feeling of stress and anxiety that cripples up when we are exposed to too many choices?

Having a remote job offers endless choices on how to create the perfect balance between work and leisure. But sometimes, it can cause stress to choose how to spend the next week, the next month, or even the next few months.

Too many choices paired with time-consuming research in where to go to the best time of the year, how to get there, what to do and how to meet new people can be frustrating at times, especially when you do all the planning by yourself.
