7 Reasons Why You Should Take A Vacation From Work

Do you need a reason (or an excuse) to take a break from work and sign that annual leave form? I'm just relaxing here with my Rosegal floatie but I got you, boo! I’ve always been one for work-life balance. So here's 7 reasons why you should take that much needed break and have a holiday.

1. Your stress levels are rising and rising and rising...
You’re cranky, you’re angry (about something or nothing), you’re short-tempered..but really you’re just nearly burnt out. It’s not doing you any good, and it’s certainly not good for your colleagues either. Take a break. You need it.
2. You've gone from panicking with stress to not caring anymore.
Okay so normally I would start panicking or worrying but I’m just over it.” Sound familiar? People who become frustrated may just be more effective than someone who just doesn’t care anymore, at least they still have some passion and energy. And if you don’t even have the energy to talk your frustrations out and prefer to zone yourself out, it’s probably time to take a holiday and press the refresh button.
3. Your husband/wife deserves a holiday.
Well I had to sneak this excuse in, of course. Celebrate an anniversary, or a birthday, a life milestone, a triumph, or just celebrate for no reason. Your partner deserves to be spoilt!

4. It's time to travel!
As the saying goes, the world is but a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. Travel has become much more affordable these days with promos and budget-friendly options available. So go on, it’s time to hashtag #wanderlust, hashtag #explore.
5. You need to clear your mind.
And even if you don’t really go anywhere, a staycation is just as good. Spend some time decluttering your home, and declutter your mind in the process. Exercise. Get a massage. Go shopping. You’ll see things clearer when you’ve taken the time to step back.

6. You need to focus.
Moving houses? Have a huge party to plan? Having your family visit? Have a major exam that you really want to ace coming up? Taking care of someone sick? Have a huge project to complete? Business venture? Everything happening all at once? While multi-tasking is a skill we women are proud of, you're just not wonder woman, as much as you'd like to think you are. You're only human and you can't do everything all at once. Take a step back. You don't want to only be half-present for something that means a lot to you. Take some time off. Focus.
7. You've worked so hard. YOU deserve a treat.
Full time employee, full time wife, entrepreneur, investor, mentor, teacher? Too many people wear too many hats these days. And hey, if juggling it all is your passion, go for it! But this time, reap what you’ve sown. You’ve worked so hard. It’s time for some me-time.
And once you're feeling all refreshed, you can be the outstanding, proactive, efficient, and hard-working employee you truly are! In the meantime, I'm just going to be here chilling with my unicorn floatie from Rosegal because I can. *wink*
