It might seem counter-intuitive, but studies have shown that if you want to be more productive, you should take some time off work. Ahhh if only it were that easy! Many employers offer paid time off (PTO) as part of the benefits package, but set roadblocks to actually accessing that time. Or perhaps you work in an industry where you wear your overtime hours like a badge of pride. Whatever the case may be, you’ll need to recharge your batteries if you want to avoid burnout.
