As the summer has come to an end, there may be a number of questions in the back of our minds: have we taken the trips and time-off we were planning to or has the summer gone by without stepping in for a coffee at your house?

It is easy to forget to give time to yourself when you are busy chasing business opportunities and easy enough to find excuses for yourself if your sacrifice resulted in a shiny new business deal. But is it smart to miss out on vacation?

According to internal research by audit firm EY (formerly Ernst & Young), employees who use more vacation days end up with better performance reviews.

So next time you are considering putting off another vacation, trey to change your mindset. Think of rest time as part of your working schedule, a booster, an express course in better efficiency – and make sure the next summer will not pass you by.
