Houseboat – National Plan for Vacation Day

| Comments Off on Houseboat – National Plan for Vacation Day

The last Tuesday of January is National Plan for Vacation Day! If it’s been a while since your last getaway, this holiday is a great opportunity to change that. Even if you love your work, taking time away periodically can help you feel recharged and rejuvenated. Unfortunately, more than half of us give up paid time off every year, adding up to more than 750 million days of vacation days that were not used. Of this number, a full third of those hours were not rolled over but forfeited. It’s no wonder half of managers are burned out, and employees are struggling to stay focused and committed.

The Benefits of Getting Away from It All

Each day, your body is pummeled by stress, and it responds to your everyday workplace worries with a flood of cortisol, adrenaline, and other stress hormones. This is an automatic response, and the hormones are designed to support your needs in a fight-or-flight situation. While this would be extremely beneficial if you needed to outrun a tiger, it’s not necessarily so helpful when you’ve got a meeting with clients or a looming deadline.

The problem worsens when your body doesn’t get the downtime needed to recharge after stress. Instead, stress hormones remain elevated for longer periods, increasing your risk of anxiety, depression, and burnout. It can also affect your heart health, increasing the risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

Weekends away from work can give you a chance to reset, but if you’re like many people, you spend those weekends catching up on housework, chores, and an ever-increasing to-do list. A vacation gives you a chance to leave your work and stress behind, catch up on rest, and restore a sense of equilibrium.
