“The breaks you take form work pay you back manifold when you return because you come back with a fresher mind and newer thinking. Some of your best ideas come when you’re on vacation.” —Gautam Singhania
Getting away can feel challenging as a business owner, entrepreneur, manager, or CEO of a company. There are always things to do, and you’re the one that makes it all happen.
But the truth is that taking time off and really letting work go, now and then, is important.
Taking time off can reduce stress and support better health. Studies show that going on vacation can even improve sleep. Taking time off recharges you, changes your scenery, and opens the door to fun and relaxation. In other words — the perfect spark to ignite your creativity, and re-energize your productivity.
Knowing all that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get away. Every good vacation begins with a commitment to yourself — that you are worthy of taking time for you. Whether it’s a getaway with family, friends, your partner, or even just going solo, vacations are a part of taking care of yourself.
