When is your next vacation?
If you don’t have an answer, it may be time to schedule one. If you’re worried about getting behind on work, then a vacation is even MORE important, not less.
Here are a few quick tips to get the most out of your vacation, while still remaining on schedule at work:
1. Block time off for a vacation in advance on your calendar.
2. Schedule processing time for the day before AND after your vacation.
3. Schedule power-down time before the vacation and power-up time upon your return.
4. Pack a gathering point, like a notebook, to bring with you. You’ll be able to jot down any thoughts and free your mind from worries.
I explain all of the above steps in more detail in my course, Balancing Work and Life, on LinkedIn Learning.
