With over 54% of Americans forfeiting their hard-earned vacation time –it’s no wonder anxiety, stress, and lack of self-care is at an all-time high. Here are 5 good reasons why taking time away from your desk is good for your soul:
In a fog? Well, that’s probably because you’re not allowing your mind to rest. If you’re constantly on the go, constantly wracking your brain, constantly going from one meeting to the next, you’re bound to lose your productivity. The key to maintaining a productive
Ever noticed those great ideas that “just come to you” when you’re not looking for them but seem elusive when you need them? That’s because you’re putting too much pressure on yourself to come up with something –anything, when oftentimes those creative ideas are inspired by something bigger (than that cubicle you’ve been living in). A vacation with lots of sunshine and soothing ambiance is just the environment you need to get those creative juices flowing. Go on now, your hammock awaits…
This one’s a no-brainer. If you’re physically removing yourself from work and taking time to get the rest you deserve, you’ll feel more energized and rejuvenated! Nothing is worse than sitting in an office all day, staring at your computer screen, and feeling completely exhausted. These kinds of days are a drag. Give yourself the vacation you deserve –and you’ll come back to work with an extra pep in your step!
Nothing says “unhealthy” like a 12-hour workday stuck in an office chair. Studies have shown that self-prescribed “work-martyrs” have trouble stepping away from their desk – oftentimes forgetting to go to the bathroom, eat lunch, or taking a lap around the office to stretch. A vacation gives you the opportunity to invest some time in your own wellness, whether it be a yoga session on the beach, a swim in the ocean, or indulging in a delicious and healthy meal. Because you deserve it, believe it or not!
Ever noticed any “happy” workaholics? Yeah…not so much. Typically, working too much leads to anxiety, stress, and depression. Workaholics often fear time away from their jobs will exude an “I don’t care about my job” vibe to their bosses –which is simply not the case! Any good company understands vacations are important to your personal life and overall well-being. In fact, studies have shown that 78-84% of workers are less likely to receive a bonus or raise, compared to those who take their PTO. So…what does that tell you? Take. The. Trip. Live your life. Trust me, you’ll be much happier.
