Pennsylvania – If you have a good boss, they might want you to go away… as in, take a vacation.

Ivan Misner, the founder of the networking organization BMI, says smart bosses realize that letting employees unplug makes them more productive.

He encourages his employees (and you) to make time to unwind.

If you’re taking days off from work, try not to take phone calls or emails related to work.

Out of the people in the United States who get paid vacation time, about half of them aren’t using all of their days.

Multiple studies have shown that taking time off from work can make you more productive in the long run.
