If you read yesterday’s blog post, then you know that vacation can help keep you happy and will actually increase productivity at work. When you are on vacation, you should completely unplug! Unfortunately, that is not a reality for many people. It’s sad and I think it’s harmful. When I am on vacation, I don’t even turn my phone on. I don’t pack any gadgets (laptops, iPads, etc.) I only bring an iPod Touch for music on the plane. Vacation should be an escape from work. Don’t even check your email!
This infographic from the Huffington Post Travel makes me disappointed in how the majority of people are vacationing.
More Americans Working Through Their Vacation Time (INFOGRAPHIC)

More Americans than ever are stressed about their jobs, and unfortunately, fewer and fewer are taking time off.
U.S. workers are increasingly forgoing their earned vacation days, using two days less than they did last year, according to a recent Expedia survey. And even when employees do take time off, more than half stay plugged in, responding to work emails and checking in at the office during their vacation.
Check out the infographic below, created by TeamViewer, for some surprising statistics on how Americans will be spending their vacation time this year.
