In a world where everyone is constantly moving in a fast-paced environment, it’s important to take a break from time to time. Like batteries, people get drained out too. Some companies even give their employees a “forced leave” in order for them to rejuvenate and come back with renewed vigor and be better equipped to handle the rigors of life.
If you’re a workaholic who doesn’t believe in breaks, then better stop right now and read why you might need one. It could be the difference between netting future success or failing flat on your back.
• Prevent yourself from being burnt out. If you have a challenging work which either requires you to move around or to analyze functions at all times, then taking a break will be good both for your body and mind. When you reach your breaking point, things may get even worse. So when you’re feeling the stress, ask your boss if you can have your two-week vacation.
• During a two-week vacation, you have ample time for yourself and everyone dear to you. You can spend a few days by yourself doing the things you love and spend some time hanging out with your family or friends and strengthen your bonds.
• Vacation time is also good to boost your creativity. Some people go to bed every night with their minds cluttered about their problems at work. When you’re on vacation, you leave your problems behind and give space to new thoughts and ideas that can at times aid you when you get back to work.
• Dine at places you want to try out. Everything tastes better when you have enough time to enjoy it. In contrast to when you’re working and hurrying to rush back, you barely enjoy what you’re having. During your time off, you can even cook for yourself or if not, go to a restaurant you’ve always wanted to go without time being an issue.
• Taking 14 days off work can actually help with your performance. Studies show that vacations lead to increased quality of life and a substantiate quality increase with your work. So don’t feel guilty about the few days you spend having fun. When you come back to work, you’ll most definitely feel more active and refreshed.
