About 40% of Americans don't plan on taking paid time off this year.
Many people fail to realize how important it is to take a break. They’re so invested in work or school that the thought of vacation seems absurd.
80% of workers admitted to not taking their time off. This means that they are spending all of their time at work, and not getting a chance to destress. While many think vacations are just a way to get out of work taking a vacation is actually vital to your mental and physical health
A study by Ernst and Young Accounting Firm actually found that for each additional 10 hours an employee took for vacation, his or her performance review was 8 percent higher the next year. This is partially due to the fact that there is so much to discover in the world, and staying stuck under heaps of work won’t help to improve performance, taking the time to learn about the world will. Even bosses who take time off are better leaders once they get back to work.
