A Workaholic's Guide to Relaxing on Vacation [Infographic]

Written by | @

There's a big difference between having a strong work ethic and being a workaholic.

When you have a strong work ethic, it means you have a strong sense of responsibility, you put in your best effort, and you care about the quality of your work -- but you also cut yourself a break every once in a while to recharge. Workaholics, on the other time, have a hard time taking breaks, cutting themselves off from work, and relaxing.

But using your vacation time to relax and recharge is important for your physical and mental health and for your overall productivity at work. No one can operate on high all of the time without eventually burning out, and that's neither good for you nor your team. 

So if you find yourself having trouble relaxing and not working when you go on vacation, take a look at the infographic below from OnlineHealth. It'll walk you through how to prepare for your vacation so leaving work won't be as stressful, how to avoid the temptation to work when you're supposed to be relaxing, and how to settle back into work again afterward without feeling guilty.

Follow this advice and I'll bet you'll feel happier and healthier in your personal life, and happier, more productive, and more creative at work.
