“You’re taking a holiday – we insist” By Capucine Yeomans, Editor at LinkedIn News. 18.8.20

With everything that’s going on right now, you might be thinking about skipping a holiday…..don’t, says Harvard Business Review. Working for an extended period of time without a break results in a decrease in performance, while the benefits of a holiday — such as improved productivity, lower levels of stress, better mental health and greater job satisfaction — are well-documented. One study even found that those who take more than 10 days of vacation each year are 30% more likely to receive a raise.  Holiday plans look different in 2020, but here are some ideas:

  • Get a change of scenery — even if that means a trip to the other side of town.
  • Have something planned — it gives you something to look forward to.
  • Actually unplug — commit to not working while on holidays.
  • Spend some time outdoors — and reap the mental and physical benefits.
The team at CSG Personnel wholeheartedly agree with this article ✅ Taking a break is more acceptable nowadays as it’s been recognised to benefit your health, positivity & helps you retain & process information. It might sound counter-intuitive to take regular breaks or a holiday from work, however it’s one of the best things to do when it comes to boosting your productivity 📈 It can ensure you gain focus & more energy when you have stepped away from your desk & even taking a lunch break can help prevent an unproductive afternoon
Athletes allow their bodies to rest after racing & training so we need to ensure that we do the same with our minds – remember to take some time out to refuel & recharge your brain this week….you’ll thank yourself for it 👍
