Instant messaging is a great way to communicate throughout the day and workweek about upcoming projects or goals. If your friends or significant others are on instant messaging as well, this can be a good way to make plans, especially for things that are long-term or require a lot of planning, like a vacation.
Through instant messaging, you and other users can decide on:
- Type of trip
- Who’s paying for what
- Who’s coming
- Length of trip
- Activities during vacation
- Who’s bringing what
- What to pack or wear
Planning a vacation is almost as fun at the vacation itself, so it’s a great way to bond with friends or family members have get a little solace during the workday or in between classes. Studies have shown that looking forward to a vacation can enhance an employee’s productivity and overall positive outlook.
However, be sure to look at your chat logs or record important decisions, payments, or dates on your calendar that are decided on in an instant messaging conversation so you don’t forget them later!
