It’s that time of year….time to skip out on a few days of work, load up the car and head to your favorite getaway spot. It is Summer break after all, right?!
Well, this is right, and, unfortunately, also wrong for many people.
A recent study conducted by CareerBuilder found that 1 in 4 people employed full-time do not plan to take a vacation this year, blaming this on the cost and an inability to take time off of work. Though the remaining respondents did plan to take a vacation, a third of them planned to take their work along with them while they were gone.
Of course, this study didn’t include those not employed full-time, and a natural assumption would be that it might be even more difficult for those without the benefits of a full-time paycheck to head to the beach for a week.
Though it might be easy to dismiss this study without feeling too sorry for those that can’t take a break, the fact remains that this number has been increasing over the last few years, indicating that we are taking less and less time off from our busy schedules. This lack of time away can lead to burnout, decreased job performance, higher stress levels (which can lead to serious health concerns), a general feeling of disassociation from family and overall lower levels of happiness and satisfaction (which can in turn lead to a more unhealthy lifestyle).
Vacations are important to our overall wellbeing, and it is important to take them, if only for a few days.
