(CNN) — With the world working on a 24/7 clock, the excuse to switch off for those hours spent traveling on a plane for business has gone. In fact, it’s become the best time to catch up.

As my creative agency Beautiful Destinations grew, the amount of time I spent abroad rapidly increased, which meant opportunities to stop my inbox from exploding and keep projects progressing decreased.

Once you’re in the thick of meetings, the best way to maintain productivity is preparation and keeping to a normal routine.

Here are eight tips to help maximize productivity while your travel.

當世界全年無休的在運作的時候上,搭飛機出差的的那幾個小時已經不能是無法工作的藉口了。實際上,這是加緊腳步的最佳時機。

隨著我的創意代理公司《美麗的目的地》的發展,我花在國外的時間迅速增加,這意味著阻止我的收件箱爆炸並讓計畫的進度降低了。

一旦參加了很多會議,保持生產力的最佳方法就是準備並保持正常的日常活動。

以下是八個秘訣,幫助您在旅途中發揮最大效能。

1. Make plans

Create a robust plan of events and meetings ahead of your trip so it’s clear where there are gaps in your diary that can be used productively for important phone calls, additional meetings or writing content. When you are in a different time zone you may need to factor in either early or late calls with the office too.

Confirm accommodation for each night that you’re away and ensure your transport is organized in advance to avoid having to spend time looking for hotel and ticket availability during your trip. This will also reduce stress levels so you can spend more time calmly focusing on the work in hand.

1. 做計畫

在旅行前,製定一個完整的活動和會議計劃,以便清楚地知道日記中哪裡有空白可用於重要的電話,其他會議或撰寫內容。當您在其他時區時,您可能也需要考慮與辦公室早或是晚通話。

提前確認您出差時每天晚上的住宿還有確保交通安排,以避免在旅途中花費時間尋找酒店和機票。這還能降低壓力水平,您就可以花更多的時間從容地專注於手頭的工作。

2. Maintain a healthy routine

Frequent travel, particularly flying, can impact your immune system, making you more *susceptible to illness. Try to maintain a healthy routine to maximize your productivity levels.If you’re jet-lagged and can’t sleep, some exercise may wake you up.While it’s often more convenient to pick up fast food and unhealthy snacks when you’re on the move, they can leave you feeling bloated and tired. Opt for healthy snacks and meals, drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration and avoid excessive caffeine, alcohol and tobacco, which can make you feel lethargic.Where possible, exercise outside to increase revitalization and boost your mood.

2. 維持健康的生活作息

頻繁旅行,尤其是飛行,可能會影響您的免疫系統,使您更容易生病。嘗試保持健康的生活作息來讓產能最大化。如果您有時差問題,無法入睡,那麼做些運動可能會喚醒您。雖然出門在外時,買速食和不健康的零食通常更方便,但它們會使您感到腫和疲倦。選擇健康的零食和飯食,多喝水以防止脫水,避免咖啡因、菸酒過量,這會使您感到昏昏欲睡。可能的話,在戶外鍛煉以增強活力並改善心情。

3. Get plenty of sleep

A good sleep routine is essential for enhancing productivity levels. It can take a while for your body and mind to adapt to different time zones when flying. A great tip is to adjust the time on your watch and/or phone before take off so you have already mentally adapted to the time zone of a new destination upon arrival.

3. 多睡覺

良好的睡眠習慣對於提高生產力水平至關重要。飛行時,您的身心可能需要一段時間才能適應不同的時區。一個很好的技巧就是在起飛前調整手錶和/或電話上的時間,以使您在到達目的地時就已經適應新目的地的時區。

4. Allow yourself downtime

Make time to explore the destination you’re in and immerse yourself in the local culture. As well as providing you with new experiences, it will stimulate creativity and may even spark new ideas which you can apply to something you’re working on. When I’m on the road, as well as taking photos, I’m always on the lookout for video opportunities to post on Beautiful Destinations.

4. 讓自己有停止工作期

花時間探索您所處的目的地,並融入當地文化。除了為您提供新的體驗外,它還將激發創造力,甚至激發出新的想法,您可以將這些想法應用到您正在從事的工作中。在旅途中以及拍照時,我總是在尋找在《美麗的目的地》上發布視頻的機會。

5. Make the most of spontaneous networking opportunities

I’m always looking for new ways to expand my network, both on social media and in person. Being on the road is an opportune time to meet new people from different walks of life.

Whether you’re at the airport, in your hotel or exploring the destinations, take time to network and strike up conversations with people you meet along the way. It may be that they can benefit you professionally if they work in a similar field and can offer a fresh perspective on something you’re working on.

5. 充分利用自發的交流機會

我一直在尋找新的方式來擴展我的網絡,無論是在社交媒體上還是面對面。在路上是結識來自各行各業的新朋友的好時機。

無論您是在機場,酒店還是在探索目的地,都要花點時間與人交流,並與沿途遇到的人進行對話。如果他們在類似的領域工作,可能會為您帶來專業上的好處,並且可以為您正在從事的工作提供新的視角。

6. Stay updated with the latest news and trends

Subscribe to news and trend alerts which pop up on your phone daily. This is essential to ensure that the content you’re creating or the discussion points you raise in meetings are current and relevant. It will show that you have your finger on the pulse, which is essential when speaking to both existing and potential new clients.

6. 隨時了解最新消息和趨勢

訂閱每天都會在您的手機上彈出的新聞和趨勢警報。這對於確保您正在創建的內容或您在會議中提出的討論要點是最新且相關的至關重要。它將表明您已掌握脈搏,這在與現有客戶和潛在新客戶交談時相當重要。

7. Listen to podcasts

If your journey requires a lot of driving, inevitably you will not have the opportunity to get much work done. You can take this time to listen to educational or inspirational podcasts such as TED Talks Daily. Hearing the insights of others based on experiences in their personal or professional lives can be invaluable as well as emotionally stimulating when you’re on the road.

7. 聽播客

如果您的旅途需要大量的駕駛,則不可避免地您將沒有機會完成很多工作。您可以抽出時間收聽教育演講或啟發性播客,例如TED Talks Daily。在旅途中,根據他人的個人或專業生活中的經驗來聆聽他人的見解不僅非常有價值,而且可以激發他們的情感。

8. Delegate

This is the most important one that I follow. When you start a company, it’s hard to give up the reins but through delegation you will tick off those tasks on your to do list.

Founded by Jeremy Jauncey in 2012, Beautiful Destinations is an award-winning creative agency behind one of the world’s largest travel communities on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat and Weibo with over 17 million followers across 180 countries on social media.

8. 委派

這是我遵循的最重要的一個。當您成立公司時,很難放棄控制,但通過委派,您會在待辦事項列表上勾選這些任務。《美麗的目的地》由JeremyJauncey於2012年創立,是一家屢獲殊榮的創意機構,其背後是Instagram,Facebook,YouTube,Snapchat和微博上全球最大的旅遊社區之一,在社交媒體上擁有來自180個國家的超過1700萬關注者。
