Q:
I want to take a long holiday, but I can’t help feeling guilty.

Hey, we get that feeling, too. But taking leave is a human right. Studies show that men who take regular breaks are not only more productive when they return, but live longer as well. Many worry about being indispensable and may feel a little guilty about the burdens their absence may place on colleagues. And here’s a mistake most make: They don’t find a person to cover their duties. Talk to your supervisor three months in advance to figure out the best time to take leave, and then identify the person who’ll stand in for you, says Marie McIntyre, PhD, the author of Secrets to Winning at Office Politics. Next, make a list of your projects and update your supervisor and stand-in on your progress every month before you take off. They’ll be impressed with your level of organisation and accountability.

Add a train journey to your holiday and get a break going to/from your vacation experience! The "short" holiday just got "longer"
