How to Make the Most of Your Vacation

How to Make the Most of Your Vacation

Just returned from a relaxing, rejuvenating summer vacation in the Hamptons and I can feel the difference!

Taking time off, and really taking advantage of it, is so important for staving off burnout and maintaining career longevity. It’s crucial for your health and overall well being.

Remember, if you’re not taken care of, everything will suffer – and you won’t be able to perform at your best!

Here are a few tips for making the most of your next vacation:

  1. Make a “work plan” while you’re out so you’re not distracted. Program your out of office reply, figure out who’s going to handle ongoing projects on your team, etc.
  2. Decide how disconnected you’re going to be and stick to it! Not everyone can go fully offline – this is okay! You can still enjoy your vacation.
  3. Take it easy when returning to work and don’t overbook yourself – ease into it so you’re not overwhelmed.

Make yourself a priority and take time off this summer – it will benefit everything else in your life.
