Working while on vacation

Working while on vacation

A recent survey shows that 49% of employed Americans admitted to working for an hour or more a day while on vacation, and 25% work more than three hours each day on paid time off.

This sort of distracted time off essentially cancels the purpose of spending time off the clock.

Another survey states that only 26% of workers used all their paid time off, and over 25% don't feel rejuvenated after their vacations.

Benefits of vacation

Vacations can do wonders for people’s mental health and well-being.

  • People who take vacations are at less risk for cardiovascular problems and other life-shortening factors, like depressive symptoms.

What to avoid during a vacation

What to avoid during a vacation

  • Working during a vacation. Resist peeking at your inbox. Put clear boundaries between your work responsibilities and personal time.
  • Keeping your notifications on. Notifications cause worry and distraction, interrupting your peaceful time off.
  • Not taking enough time off. Research suggests it takes around a week to feel truly detached from work.
  • Neglecting to plan before your vacation. Practice good pre-vacation protocol by meeting most of your vacation week’s deadlines in advance. Set a good out-of-office message.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
