A change of scenery -- like Kanye West and Madonna have done -- can boost your work performance, experts say.
Pulling a Kanye might improve your workflow.
The rapper’s controversial tweets have raised eyebrows lately — but he did make the right moves in retreating to Jackson Hole, Wyoming last week to finish his new album dropping at the end of the month. Experts say that a change of scenery can spark greater creativity and improve your overall happiness and quality of life.
“We get into ruts at work by following strict routines,” career coach Dr. Todd Dewett tells Moneyish. “Routines give us efficiency, but can mess up the way we think. That’s the problem.”
Many other celebrities have taken similar work getaways to get their creative juices flowing. Madonna fled to Comporta, a seaside village in Portugal, ahead of her Met Gala performance last week. Her Instagram feed showed her riding a horse on the beach before the big night. Singer-songwriter John Mayer has a ranch in Montana where he escapes to write music, and actress-turned-lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow frequently taps into her own mental health and wellness at a spa in Sedona.
