Take a Vacation, You Deserve It

By Ryan Lambert -- Published May 14, 2014

It's been a while since I last posted... Actually, it's been just over a month since I last posted. Normally when I take vacation I have some articles written in advance that I schedule to post while I'm away, but that didn't happen this time. Probably because my vacation this time was to get married and to take our honeymoon, and believe it or not.... I didn't have much mental capacity in the weeks prior to go around writing up extra posts to fill in the gap. Heck, I didn't even have time to write the posts I thought about writing!

Vacation is Vital

Every human deserves to take vacation, and luckily for me, I just had 18 straight days with no work. It. Was. Amazing! Growing up, my family typically took 2 weeks to go camping every summer. My dad always said that unless he could take 2 weeks off, he didn't get the same level of relaxation and I now agree. This was the first time ever in my adult life that I took a vacation that was longer than one week, and the extra time off truly makes a difference. It took the first 10-12 days just to really let my mind be free of work, and those last few days were wonderfully relaxing.

You don't need an excuse like getting married to take your vacation time, just do it!
