Vacations are a must: Proven reasons why you need more time off

Vacations are great and all, but there’s one little problem: We don’t take enough of them. In fact, U.S. employees only use 51 percent of their eligible paid vacation time and paid time off. And to top things off, of those who do pack their bags and head out on a trip, 61 percent work while on vacation (despite complaints from family members).
