The Project:Time Off Coalition is comprised of organizations committed to changing the thinking and behavior of Americans about vacation time. As part of a national movement, coalition members understand that putting our wasted days to use will provide a $236 billion boost to the economy, and, more importantly, improve the health, happiness, and careers of overworked Americans.
Whether it's the feeling that you'll return to a greater workload or that your employer will question your dedication, there's many excuses for why we delay taking our much-deserved time off. When interviewing managers, Project: TimeOff discovered that the majority (91%) of them WANT you to take your vacation days but just wished you had told them about it at the beginning of the year.
Travel is actually important for your health and well being. Getting away from the grind and allowing yourself the time and space to recharge decreases the risk of heart disease, depression, and stress while strengthening the bonds with your loved ones. It's also great for your career. Taking time away from the office to travel and UNPLUG increases creativity and productivity upon your return. Research has shown that those that travel are much happier overall-with their health and wellbeing, their relationships, their financial situation and their overall mood. They are also happier with their workplace and their employer.
So what are you waiting for? Whether it's sun and sand or the snowy alps you prefer, let's make 2019 the year you check-off your BUCKET LIST not just your to-do list!
