You have vacation days then sick days and if you are lucky, you may have some personal days. So what do you take your days off for? A new survey by PR Newswire found 72% of people say they take off at least one day a year just to get more SLEEP. Apparently 40% take off at least five days for sleeping. Don’t those numbers sound high? I wonder what the people that did this study took off work for.
Here are some of the other times we take days off to do something besides go on vacation:
1. Family emergencies, 37%.
2. Doctor’s or dentist’s appointments, 36%.
3. To take care of a sick kid or family member, 31%.
4. Projects around the house, 23%.
5. To run errands, 23%.
