Cool, new start-ups have no restrictions on vacation – but they have no vacation policy either. The paradoxical effect is that people are taking less vacation rather than more, which is not good for our mental health.

So, in defense of vacation, I am taking a few days this week to enjoy the following. Click on each if you want to learn more about the link to good mental health.

1. Sleep. 

2. Exercise.

3. Nature.

4. Wine. 

5. Daydreaming.

Till next week…
