5 signs you’re burned out and need a vacation

Every year we get vacation time. Are you using yours? Believe or not, a lot of people have paid vacation and don’t use it. Seriously, what are these people thinking? If you haven’t taken a vacation in a while, here are some signs that you’re overdue.

Everything annoys you

Are you snapping at people for no good reason? Do you find yourself thinking about how stupid Jarod is because he can’t find his stapler? It may be time to take a break and unwind.

You used to be funny

Everyone used to think you were the funniest person in the office. Used to. Now you’re just a grumpy, big ball of negativity. It’s time to relax. Find that funny guy and bring him back. Start by looking in a beach chair somewhere.

You’re always tired

I’ll tell you why you’re tired. You don’t sleep well. You’re too stressed. You work too hard. Give it a break already! Hand over the reins and spend ten days drinking Mai Tais. That’ll do the trick.

Someone has actually said, “You need a vacation.”

Your family and co-workers are around you the most, so when they say you need a vacation, they’re probably right. When you hear those four words from a complete stranger, you should run to the airport immediately.

This is you
