Hello Waldorf Students and Alumni!
I am in a great mood today because I just got back from a long and relaxing vacation. My spirits are high and I feel much more at ease.
I recently saw a startling statistic. A recent study found that in 2015, only 55% of US workers took the full amount of vacation days they were allotted. As someone who just came back from a vacation, I find that upsetting!
I know that each of you are hardworking individuals, trying day in and day out to balance work, school and family obligations, so I share this with you as a warning. No matter how busy you are, no matter how much you have going on, you deserve a break every once in a while.
Research shows that vacations can improve your mental stability, increase productivity when you get back to work and school and also make you an overall happier person.
Summer is almost half-way over and if you have not taken a vacation, do yourself a favor and plan it today! Get the family together, head to explore a new city or just relax on a beach somewhere! Your family, your professors and your coworkers will thank you for it!
