Here’s another holiday I can get behind- and for once it has nothing to do with food! Today is National Leave the Office Early Day, though perhaps we are telling you this too late and you aren’t able to celebrate it today. That’s okay! The point of the day is to encourage and increase worker efficiency and productivity by recognizing that taking breaks is better in the long run for everyone, employees and employers alike.
Today on the show we dug into why that is. We looked at why we need breaks, both the benefits of taking them and the risks of not. It can be difficult to find the time to take breaks depending on your situation. Your job may not offer paid time off, and you can’t afford to miss any hours. You might shoulder many responsibilities from which you don’t think you or your company can afford you stepping away, so the vacation days keep accruing. Whatever the situation, the base reality is the same: God did not design us to work nonstop. He instituted a day of rest for a reason.
