Are you dreading to go to work in the morning? Are you experiencing burnout? If so, you may be in need of a vacation from work! Studies have shown that vacations from work can reduce strain levels and absenteeism rates!
When you have the flu, do you stay at work? Although the answer for some may be yes (thank you to you, colleague, who came to work to pass on the flu to everyone else), the real answer should be no. If you are not feeling physically healthy, you take a "sick" day. Your mental health should be no different. Feeling mentally or emotional unwell is a legitimate reason to take a day off work to recharge your batteries and engage in some self-care.
