Why Summer Vacations and the Internet Make You More Productive

September 5, 2011|Uncategorized

Enjoy this long Labor Day weekend - research shows that the time off will not only make you more productive at work but also improved mental health.

Small breaks at work or long vacations – either way it’s good for you and good for business. Check out the interesting article below (while you are on vacation).

Excerpt:

Just as small breaks improve concentration, long breaks replenish job performance. Vacation deprivation increases mistakes and resentment at co-workers, Businessweek reported in 2007. “The impact that taking a vacation has on ones mental health is profound,” said Francine Lederer, a clinical psychologist in Los Angeles specializing told ABC News. “Most people have better life perspective and are more motivated to achieve their goals after a vacation, even if it is a 24-hour time-out.”

The bottom line is that breaks are better for our brains than overtime. Where you get your break — from an hour on blogs, a day in the park, or a week golfing at Marthas Vineyard — doesnt matter so much as that you get it. If you care about your own productivity, dont be afraid to goof off online. And if you care about decision-making at the national level, tune out the critics and root for your presidents golf game.
