The 1 Thing You Must Do Before Summer Ends

09/05/2018 - 05:27 PM

There's only one thing you need to do this Summer [1], and it's so simple. Take a day off of work [2]. No more excuses or concerns — just do it. Not only is it the ultimate season to relax and vacation [3], taking just one day off of your job has been proven to increase productivity [4].

No, seriously — by removing yourself from the workplace for one extra day, you are giving yourself a refresh. Not only does it improve your mental health, it makes you more valuable when you return to your job. Studies prove [5] that employees are happier and more energetic when they take advantage of their vacation days.

Most Americans don't make use of all of their alotted time off [6] each year while employees in other countries often take twice as many vacation days in that same time period. It's time to give yourself a break!

The next time you hesitate about scheduling a day off, remember that it's not only good for you, it's good for your workplace.
