For years, I believed in the “using only a few vacation days a year” is okay mantra. I worked hard. I did well. I got close to burning out, and then took an opportunity that changed the way I looked at it.
After realizing that the world will not, in fact, end if I am out of the office, and don’t respond to emails within an hour, or even a day, my approach to work and life changed. While I’m still not sure I will use all 28 of my PTO days this year, I do not feel bad about the fact that I’m taking a long weekend to enjoy the beach, the spa, and a dear friend.
That’s right, it’s Treat Yo Self weekend!
I’m excited for some relaxation, a ton of reading, and getting sweaty in that south Florida heat.
Do you use all of your vacation or sick time each year?
When was the last time you participated inTreat Yo Self day?
If you could have any spa treatment, what would it be?
