The year is almost ending but have you taken advantage of your vacation leaves? It’s easy to get lost in your work – you want to catch up on your piling to-do list, you plan to get promoted before the year ends, you’d rather convert your VLs into cash. But sometimes it’s also worth taking some time off from the rat race, not just because you deserve it, but also because you very much need it. Read on for the five signs that you need a vacation:
Your body hates you
Our bodies have a way of telling us that something is wrong. It can be in the form of a debilitating migraine in the middle of a challenging week, or suddenly getting sick with the flu come weekend time. Eye strain, backaches, or headaches are your body’s way of telling you that you need to take a break.
Everything and everyone annoys you
By the time you get to the workforce, you already know how to deal with unpleasant and stressful situations. You’re already capable of handling life or work curveballs and you know how to tackle them easily: with the right amount of determination and a sprinkle of sense of humor. However, when you’re feeling really burnt out, tired or stressed, every little thing will seem like a huge issue.
You keep getting asked if you’re feeling okay
Other people will notice how cranky you are, which can in turn affect your performance at work or your relationships outside of it. Because you’re highly stressed, you’re also more likely to slip up at work and make mistakes, therefore affecting your work colleagues. Outside of the office, you might be more moody than usual and you won’t have the time or energy to catch up with family or friends. Chronic stress does not only affect you as a person, it can also affect the ones you deal with on a daily basis.
You have trouble sleeping
Too much stress actually makes it hard for you and your body to get some well-deserved rest. If you find yourself tossing and turning till 2AM, it’s best to start planning even just a short vacation. Removing yourself from a stressful environment will do you and your body some good.
You’re feeling cynical
Stress leads to negativity, so you get bored, feel tired and you’re generally unhappy. Each morning will be filled with a sense of dread and you’ll find it hard to muster enough energy or positivity to go about your daily activities. Little indulgences such as a dining out, visiting the gym or going on a mini shopping trip can be a good pick-me-up treat, but if this isn’t working anymore, it’s time to take a quick step back from the workforce and give yourself a much-needed break.
