Here are 8 reasons to go on vacation and become better at work, as pointed out by Robert Locke, a scholar, expert, and enthusiast in relationships and motivation:

1. Inspiration: Your office may not be the most inspiring environment. Taking a vacation allows you to step away from the pressures of work and gain new perspectives. Rieva Lesonsky, CEO of GrowBiz Media, notes that holidays can trigger creativity and new ideas.

2. Step out of your comfort zone: Delegating tasks and taking a break from work allows you to understand how things function without your constant presence. This can lead to surprising realizations about the independence of your team.

3. Health benefits: Vacations provide an opportunity for better sleep, reduced stress, and improved mood, ultimately benefiting your overall health. Julie Jumonville, CEO of UpSpring Baby, emphasizes the importance of returning from vacation feeling energized and refreshed.

4. Mental rejuvenation: Giving your brain a break from work allows for mental relaxation and the opportunity for new ideas to flourish. Experiencing new environments and perspectives during vacation can enhance mental activity.

5. Embracing change: Vacations challenge the notion that one can constantly be “switched on” regarding work. It’s essential to recognize the importance of rest in maintaining productivity and overall well-being.

6. Networking: Vacation offers opportunities to meet new people and expand your professional network. Without the pressures of work, you can engage in meaningful conversations and potentially gain new insights or ideas.

7. Understanding your role: Taking a vacation allows you to realize that the company can function without your constant presence. Whether you own the business or are employed, recognizing your replaceability can provide valuable perspective.

8. Boosting performance: Ernst & Young’s study reveals that those who take more vacations achieve better performance results. Contrary to the belief that more office hours lead to increased productivity, taking breaks actually contributes to improved performance.
