Did you know that vacation time can benefit your small business?
Are you planning to work your way through the holidays? If so, you may be cheating your small business. Even though it may seem counterproductive, taking regular breaks from your work is one of the best ways to keep your business in shape. Studies show that those who take breaks are more engaged in their work as well as being more productive workers. What’s more, taking a break as a business owner helps you to return to your desk feeling refreshed and full of new ideas.
Taking breaks from your small business allow you to:
- Spend quality time with the family – What is the festive season without family? A scheduled vacation allows you to plan time off with your family so that you can spend some quality time together. Also, it allows you to let clients know that you’ll be out of the office and set up a forwarding email address and number. Be sure to make family time for festivities.
- Regain a balance of work and life – As a business owner, you may be skimping on your vacation or sick days. Allow yourself to enjoy time off away from work to reenter your priorities and create your own work culture that values time away from the office.
- Empower your employees – Any business owner understands that a burnt out employee is little good to the company. Taking a vacation now and again is good for the mind. What’s more, when you as a business owner take a vacation, you enthuse trust into your team to get the job done. By taking on new responsibilities, many hard-working team members thrive.
Taking a regular vacation is all about maintaining the productivity of your company – and your sanity! From relieving stress to focusing thoughts to resting, a holiday can do you and your business more good than harm.
