AUSSIES kind of suck at taking holidays. According to Roy Morgan Research, our annual leave stockpile currently totals 129 million days.
Perhaps were afraid to take a vacation. After all, holidays require a lot of planning. And, often, theyre not all theyre cracked up to be.
But it doesnt have to be the case.
Even if your holiday is simply staying home looking after children, you can still have fun.
Remember too that holidays are there for a reason – to give you a physical and mental break from work.
Taking mini-breaks throughout the year – three or four days here and there – as well as a longer break can help us recharge, says motivational speaker Mark McKeon, author of Get in the Go Zone.
