Top Ten Signs You Need a Vacation
1. You cannot remember the last time you laughed or even smiled.
2. Your stress is making you unbearable to be around.
Stress can be one of those things that you might not notice until it is too late. One clear sign of being too stressed is being irritated at everyone and everything.
When you are more irritated than normal you snap at people. You lose your temper fast when you are normally a really calm and patient person, if you snapped at your cat - you could need a vacation.
3. You find yourself dealing with the day in unhealthy ways.
You know you are in need of a vacation when you start opening the second bottle of wine just to be able to go to sleep at night.
4. You cannot remember the last time you did not work late.
Working from home makes it really hard to stop working and put the laptop away. Before the pandemic we used to travel home from work and there was a definate time to stop work and start personal time.
5. When you wake up in the morning you cannot remember what day it is.
It is easy to become so consumed by our work that you forget about the fact that it is the weekend. Balance means saying "no" and stopping those long hours of work.

8. You binged watched every TV series on Netflix.
