Look around at kids in your home or neighborhood on vacation! The joy of longer days to swim, the fun of time off, and time to do whatever they want spontaneously keeps their spirits and energy high. We can have that too! We can be healthier, happier and more productive with a vacation and time off. Although it seems counter intuitive, there’s lots of reasons what taking a vacation helps improve productive.
A vacation energizes you
Working to declutter and organize requires energy. In our day to day busy lives, we are giving a lot of energy to what is required. We seldom have energy to get done what is required of us in a day. After a vacation, being refreshed, you are ready to take on decluttering and organizing. You are ready to make decisions and let go of what you don’t need.
Take a vacation and do your organizing
Some times we take a vacation and do the tasks we seldom get to during our typical time at home. Some of us enjoy organizing but seldom have the time to get organized. It may be that your vacation is a gift to yourself to get your organizing done. It makes sense to take a vacation and get your organizing done in order to create balance and serenity.
Open ended time helps you improve productively
When you are away from work, you are more open to fresh ideas. Your brain refreshes just like when you sleep. Your time away is taking care of you. It’s a wellness break that is required for you to be your best. “Getting away from a familiar environment help gain clarity on life,” says Adam Galinsky, professor at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
This year my family will be taking a vacation that helps us all get away. Not only will it improve productivity, it will increase our connectivity. Share where you will be heading off to on vacation this summer!
