This year I'm taking my summer vacations in spurts. I wasn't sure that was the best idea but decided to give it a go. Instead of my usual 2 weeks off all at once...and according to this recent study I may have decided on the right approach.
According to a new survey, the majority of people say that vacations recharge them and help them recover from stress . . . but those good feelings go away QUICKLY.
40% of people say the good feelings disappear within a few days . . . and 24% say they disappear the SECOND they're back at work.
The survey also found that only 41% of people say their company encourages them to take time off . . . and 19% of people avoid taking vacations because they're afraid it'll make it look like they're not committed to their job.
So, if you're going on vacation for the 4th, try to enjoy every second. Because as soon as you're back at work, you'll be back to feeling that old sensation of crushing emptiness. But hey, that vacation sure was great!
