Breather Credit

Let’s get real for a minute. We all face distractions in our everyday lives, from work to family obligations. So much so that there’s often little time to focus on your own state of well-being in the chaos of each day. It’s so simple to overlook how helpful getting away from it all truly is. Whether it’s to get your creative juices flowing or better brainstorm with other team members, finding a place outside of your normal routine is major. And for me, Breather.com is a must.

Breather.com is a website and mobile app that aims to provide a “quiet space in the middle of the hustle and bustle.” It’s ideal if you’re looking for a clean spot to get out of your office, catch up on deadlines, meet with coworkers or even sneak in a power nap. With locations in major cities across the country, including Washington D.C., San Francisco and New York City, the spaces often come equipped with WiFi, festive decorations, whiteboards and conference tables.

Breather Credit

But you may be wondering, “How does it work?” See below for steps to sign up and reserve a room:

  1. Download the mobile app or visit the Breather.com website
  2. Input your personal information and verify your mobile phone number
  3. Choose an available building space in your city that meets your specific needs
  4. Create your reservation by selecting the date and time you’ll need the room, as well as the duration.

When you’re ready for your reservation, head to the location, use your phone to check-in and enjoy. At the end of your reservation, your credit or debit card will be charged a rate determined by the location. Then you’re good to go. Cool concept, right?

Casandra-at-the-Airbnb

Traveling is one of my favorite pastimes because nothing exhilarates me quite like adventure, a change in location and novel experiences I’ll always remember. When you’re traveling, there are few things more important than convenience and cost. You simply don’t want to spend an arm and a leg when deciding where to stay. Nor do you want your accommodations to be less than comfortable just because you’re on a budget. You often find yourself having to go the extra mile to make your vacation life a little easier. The key is to have great amenities, but not break the bank, especially if you’re planning an extended stay of three or more days. That’s where Airbnb comes in.

When you need peace and relaxation without the hassle, Airbnb is the perfect resource. It’s basically an online search tool that connects travelers with people who are opening up their homes for vacation rentals around the globe. Instead of staying in a stuffy hotel staring at white walls, you can get an authentic feel for your destination. I stayed in an Airbnb spot on a recent trip to Bali and loved it. It gives you the ultimate travel experience, unlike any other. Imagine being able to take in a new, unique culture? It’s everything.

Casandra-at-the-Airbnb

Many hosts provide amazing amenities such as small bedside gifts, homemade breakfast and treats, personalized cards, and much more. And luxury is right at your fingertips because you can search and book accommodations online or from a mobile phone or tablet. It’s just that simple. Adventures and time well-spent are invaluable. And traveling the world has never been easier with Airbnb.

Ready to try it? I’m offering a special $40 off credit that you can use to book your first stay. Click here to claim the discount or enter the link http://bit.ly/foodbnb in your search bar. Enjoy your stay!
