Time Off – TGIF – America Needs to Take a Break

bill-murray-drinking

Time off – Did you know that 429 Million paid time off days were not used last year?

It does not surprise me that most Americans work hard and just cannot seem to find the right excuse to disconnect themselves from work. I always try to remind myself why taking that time is important.

So what does not taking time off affect?

  1. A Healthy Marriage
  2. Depression
  3. Burnout
  4. Relationship with kids

I found an interesting site that I would like to share that has great info on this very subject.

I live in Jupiter, Florida which is a quite sleepy town. Time off for me is not being next to a device and enjoying the great outdoors. I feel if you’re going to disconnect, the best way to do that is to get out into nature and feel what it is to be alive. Working 24/7 will create emotional and physical stress on the body which is not worth it. So get out there and enjoy your weekend with some good time off!

And with that, I leave you this week’s Bill Murray.
