Sometimes when we are overwhelmed with work that is very important to us, we forget to take a break and relax a little. You may be working overtime and even on the weekend thinking that it would help you achieve much more. However, according to recent studies, your productivity drops a lot when you do not get enough rest. You do not have to take a long vacation, just a couple of days off or even one day off will help you get enough rest.
Let’s take a look at how productive your one day off could be.
#1 Keep Your Resume Up-to-date
A new job offer can come up at any moment and you should make sure that your CV is up-to-date with latest information on your career. This might also help you get a clear perspective on what you have been doing with your career lately and get a view on what to do next.
#2 Study More
Find out about all local presentations, seminars and lectures on the topic you are interested in. Some of them may be of great use to you.
#3 Read a Book
Has it been long since you read something new and interesting that might be helpful for your career? Spend some time on it.
Find a local charity that you can spend a couple of hours at. This might not only be a great way for you to take your mind of your work, but also a great way to help people.
#5 Relax and Recharge
Find the most relaxing way you can spend time – sleep in, get a massage, spend some time with your family and friends. This will help you get your mind of many things and let you come back to work recharged.
