How can taking a vacation benefit you

It's time we say "enough is enough" and learn to put our needs first. Taking time off is good for your mental and physical health, and you can come back more productive and effective. It's a win-win.

This recovery process requires “switching off” from work by having periods of time when you are neither engaging in work-related activities, nor thinking about work.

Exfoliate your skin during bath

You can also exfoliate your skin by...
