Leading studies have shown that not taking vacation leads to burnout. In order to prevent burnout at work and in my relationships, I have taken this week off. It’s not a truly unplugged vacation – we are not in the south of France or padding on the Nahanni River. It’s more like nine Saturdays in a row. No makeup. No ironing. No commute. No meetings. It’s been really, very lovely.
I highly recommend it.
