Raise your hand if you've ever found yourself working even though you're supposed to be on leave. Don't worry, you're not alone! It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of work life, even when you're supposed to be taking a break.
But before you start beating yourself up for checking your work email during your time off, let's take a closer look at the situation. Here are a few things to consider:
Your boss may not appreciate it
While you may think you're being productive and getting ahead, your boss may see it differently. They may feel like you're not respecting the time you've been given off and may even feel like you're setting a bad example for the rest of the team.
It's important to disconnect
Taking time off is not just about physically being away from work, it's also about mentally disconnecting. Working while on leave can hinder your ability to truly recharge and come back refreshed and ready to tackle new challenges.
You deserve a break
Let's face it, work can be exhausting! You deserve a break to relax, recharge, and do the things that make you happy.
