YOUR WEALTH
Editor’s Note
A research report found that American workers forfeited more than 200 million vacation days last year, and those days could not be rolled over. Are you kidding, folks? What can keep you from taking much-needed time off?

Of course, there are people who believe they just cannot get away from the old office. It’s hard to believe I need to say this, but let me tell you why it is important to take time off. That vacation serves as a form of stress relief. And, by the way, there is scientific evidence that suggests that you will be healthier and more productive if you take some real breaks throughout the year. One study showed that employees were able to sleep better and were in a better mood after vacations, and the effects were still felt more than a month after their return. Another study demonstrated that vacations, especially those taken in warmer climates, resulted in increased productivity and less exhaustion for employees.

Some people truly believe no one else at the company can do the work while they’re out or they feel they can never be disconnected from the job for an extended period of time. Well, that’s not healthy. Taking time away from the office is quite beneficial. It’s a key way to relax and recharge and return to work in a better state of mind.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
