@tony-sadowski What a great article! I have often found that it is sometimes harder to take a long vacation that it is to just work, because like they say you are just playing catch up. I find the research comparing the US to other countries fascinating when it comes to our work life balance and how that impacts our health and lifestyles. PS – I love all of your content for WHYY! WHYY and NPR are just some of the daily podcasts and articles I consume 🙂
Thanks, Kiersten! It’s incredibly difficult for some people to unplug – especially when our jobs often require us to be “on” all or most of the time. I’m lucky in that what I do doesn’t demand I be on-call or putting in a lot of late night/weekend hours. But the other 3 adults away with me on our trip are very much in that boat, and it was impossible for them to disconnect!
Glad to hear you’re a WHYY fan – thanks for watching and listening!
