I have always been an advocate of taking time off and having proper work-life balance. I enjoy working, but vacations are a priority for me and my family. We choose to forego certain luxuries and to save money from each paycheck so we can take a trip together each year. We find that vacations are a great way for us to grow closer together, experience new adventures, and make lifelong memories. Which is why I love it when someone else shares my passion for the importance of taking time off. It not only helps relationally, but it can refuel creativity as well. Here is Stefan Sagmeister’s Ted Talk from Oxford about the Power of Taking Time Off.
