“So much to do, so little time.” While the phrase may sound like it perfectly describes our lives, research shows there actually is time.
Americans universally say that vacation days are important to them, yet 54 percent of workers aren’t using their hard-earned vacation time. Recent research found that workers are taking nearly a full week less of vacation than we did in 2000, resulting in a stockpile of 600 million unused vacation days.
The benefits of planning your vacation extend beyond days spent away from the office for rest and rejuvenation. Vacation planners report greater happiness than non-planners with their relationships, health and well-being, company, and job.
What are you waiting for? Stop making excuses. Take back your calendar and put vacation at the top of your list of priorities.
