Here are 10 Tips for Using All Your Vacation Time:
1. Give Yourself Permission
It is more than okay to take this earned benefit from your company. This is a part of your benefit package and necessary for work/life balance.
2. What is the Benefit to You?
More importantly, what is the benefit to your relationship? Ask yourself that question. When was the last time you invested time in your relationship?
3. Eliminate Excuses
I am sure you can conjure up a myriad of excuses of why you can’t take the time off. Eliminate them! Instead, create excuses why you need to take the Time Together! Solve whatever is getting in your way.
4. Get Organized
Use a calendar, what needs to be taken care of? Is it better to go when the kids are in school or is it better to go when they are on break. What is a typical “slow time” at work?
5. Start Early
It is never too late to plan and book a vacation, however, the earlier you start the more time you have to work through any possible hiccups at home and at work.
6. Delegate Your Responsibilities
There are people in your office that can help you while you are away. In return, help them when they are on vacation. Everyone wins!
7. Rely on Co-Workers
Never more important to rely on co-workers than while you are away. Everyone wants to feel at peace and ease while they on are vacation.
8. There is NO Perfect Time
Stop using the excuse “now is just not a good time”!! Make it a good time. Remember: Eliminate all Excuses. Make this a priority.
9. Remember: You Have Earned This
Your employer made paid vacation time a part of your benefits package for a reason. Everybody knows that work/life balance is essential in productivity and happiness with their work.
