Test drive your dream job (and find happiness)

Test drive your dream job (and find happiness)


A big part of being healthy and happy in this world is to make sure you're spending your workday doing something you enjoy. Even the best of dream jobs can be stressful and tiring at times, and so if you're like most people and aren't in your dream job then those tiring stressful days are only that much more common. If you're feeling overwhelmed with stress, unhappiness, or even simple boredom in your current work situation it may be worth considering taking a vacation into another vocation. Because stress, unhappiness, and boredom are not healthy.


Test drive your dream job (and find happiness)

Well one guy, while sitting in traffic one day on the way to his executive office job in the Midwest, thought pretty much that exact same thought one day -- and an idea was born.Taking a vacation into another job is something that people are not generally able to do, but why not? Why shouldn't people be able to try out their dreams and expand their horizons without risking their current careers in the process?


And so Brian Kurth founded VocationVacations, which is a business that's in the business of allowing people to do just that: sample their dreams. Always wanted to be a photographer? A baker? A forensic scientist? Well now you can. You can experience what it would be like to really do those things over a period of several days, complete with an experienced mentor to show you the ropes and a career coach to give you advice. An opportunity like this isn't cheap, though, running anywhere from $349-$2000 for 2 or 3 days. But how much do you normally spend on vacations? If you've got a dream hanging out in the back of your mind getting old and dusty this could be the chance of a lifetime to find out once and for all if it's worth the mental energy you spend dreaming it. Even if you hate the few days of the experience at least then you'll know, and then you can move on to bigger and better things. I think finding happiness is worth the effort -- and your health!
