It’s easy to forget to unwind when you’re busy working all the time. Traveling for work can be especially taxing on your relaxing time, and you might feel like you would be wasting time by getting your mind off work. Nevertheless, countless studies and research have shown that spending time working when you should be resting actually diminishes productivity. This is why you should regularly take small breaks throughout your work day, especially when you’re traveling.
Traveling gives you the chance to change environments quite a lot, from the airplane to your California limousine, to your hotel room. Sometimes you have no choice but to wait around for various tasks to be done. These moments are perfect for reading. So here are the top five books we like drawing inspiration from.
- Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff by Richard Carlson

This book is easy to read and it can provide some nice inspiration to find that peace of mind all of us are searching for.
- The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner
Its complete title: The Geography of Bliss: One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World is a great indication as to why this is a great choice for travelers.
This book might make you see some things a little differently than you would think to initially approach them. It might even bring to life a desire to travel more, uncover the ways people think and how their mentality differs from yours based on where they live.
