You may still be dreaming of that overseas holiday or relaxing beach holiday, and those holidays will come again in time.
But remember, time to rest, relax, re-energise, spend quality time with family is important, so plan to take a break even in these uncertain times. Yes, it may be a staycation, but it might be that perfect opportunity to finish that lingering home renovation project, read that book, paint, write that novel or movie script, or just take the time and reflect on the important things in life.
It might also be the break you need to manage home-schooling or help with the other roles we play for our loved ones.
Why not take your leave flexibly?
Annual leave doesn’t always need to be taken in full days or weeks. You can take half days or just a few hours each day to achieve more balance and spend time on the things you need to do.
