One of the good things to come out of the pandemic has been the way people are more willing to prioritize mental health and find a work-life balance. One way to decrease your work stress is to incorporate fun things, like traveling and spending more time with your partner. Discover these exciting jobs that let you travel with your spouse.
If you enjoy working with students, consider teaching English in another country. Many countries have special programs for native English-speakers willing to teach in exchange for pay and perks, like room and board. You and your spouse can easily travel around the world by finding work as teachers.
Work on a Cruise Ship
While working on a cruise ship won’t give you the same experience as living in another country, it can give you a taste of many different countries. Another bonus is that cruise ships need all kinds of workers, so both you and your spouse can find something you’re qualified for.
Become Au Pairs
One exciting job that lets you travel with your spouse is acting as an au pair for a family in another country. While you may have trouble finding a family willing to take in both you and your spouse, finding work in the same location shouldn’t be as much of a problem.
Tag-Team Truck Driving
Do you love road trips? Married couples are currently in high demand as truck driving teams because they don’t need to make as many overnight stops. There are many kinds of truck driving jobs, including both regional and nationwide routes.
If you and your partner can find remote jobs, then there’s no reason why you need to stay in one place. Relocate to the mountains, the beach, or even internationally if it helps you enjoy more of your life. Just make sure to talk to your employer about any relocation plans so that you don’t have logistical issues receiving your paycheck.
Work isn’t always fun, but it shouldn’t be stressful. You can decrease your work stress by making relaxation and quality time with your partner part of your responsibilities.
