Vacations are important. That's why companies give you that time. It's time to relax, regenerate, rejuvenate, and reenergize yourself.
But too many people don't take their vacation time and end up tired, exhausted, and overwhelmed by work, and they never get refreshed.
One of my friend mentioned the other day that he has so much vacation time built up that he is losing it every year. Losing vacation time can be thought of as giving away money! You get this time as part of your compensation. It's there for a reason. Your company wants you to take that time so you can be refreshed and be a better employee and member of the team.
The more tired you get the more inefficient you get. Inefficiency costs you time. Vacations let you rest up both physically and mentally.
So, take those vacations. You will be happier and more efficient when you return to work --- guaranteed! And your family will appreciate it too.
