Taking time off without feeling guilty may be easier said than done, but a few strategies can help you. Lawyers need vacations just like everyone else.
“Taking time off from work can leave you feeling more stressed than if you were actually at work….You may find it difficult to unplug and getaway knowing that the office still needs running. At least, that’s how I used to feel. I used to think a work-life balance was something you earned after years of dedication and sticking to your role. I didn’t think it was possible for me to leave for an extended period of time and come back feeling good about it. Luckily, I’ve seen that there are a plethora of benefits to taking some time off, regardless of your role in a company. Everyone needs a reset and relax button. Quite frankly, I wish more companies demanded this of their employees the way other countries do.”
