It’s time for a Vacation.
“I can’t afford to take time off.” “I don’t want work to pile up.” “I don’t want to be seen as replaceable.” These excuses for not taking vacation are all too common — especially in the United States, where hundreds of millions of vacation days go unused each year.
But here’s the thing: Vacation is actually good for your productivity and performance at work. Almost nine out of ten American workers feel like time off increases their happiness — which, in turn, can do wonders for your productivity.
Even your boss thinks so: 91% of business leaders believe their employees return recharged and ready to work more effectively.
