Feeling guilty about the vacation you just scheduled for this coming summer? Don’t. Taking a break from work and your everyday routine isn’t just for fun, it’s essential for mental health and creativity. Dr. Ann Matt Maddrey, assistant professor of psychiatry at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas insists, “Vacations are not a waste of time. You’ll do a much better job and have new ideas when you return.”

So, allow yourself a guiltless breather from the daily grind. Your body and mind will thank you!
