Taking time off has its proven benefits — from boosting creativity to higher productivity to improved health — that even better lifestyle habits don’t bring about. It is a great way to recharge and refresh ourselves.
But most people find the amount of work waiting for them upon their return from a longer vacation to actually cause more stress than the vacation resolved. Long vacations can actually increase burnout even though it allows for longer periods of rest. How many times have you returned from a long vacation in need of more time off to recover from your vacation?
Most people feel a bigger reduction in stress after a three-day weekend than they do after a longer break away from work. A shorter vacation can be easier to plan, budget for, and recover from.
With two long weekends upcoming, you can have your cake and eat it too! You don’t have to take off a day from work for your short break, and you will still have enough days annual leave for a longer vacation.
Long weekends are the perfect opportunity for a shorter vacation. If you've missed out on the one that has just passed, don't worry, another one is just around the corner.
