05 Jan Taking a Vacation is Valuable
Any one that is in the food industry knows that the holiday season is one of the most stressful and busiest times of the year for pastry chefs. Orders are placed until the last minute and holiday parties around Christmas time are very popular for custom dessert orders. People want to impress family and friends with beautiful, unique and delicious desserts! miFlavour does just that! Our number one priority is to provide impressive desserts and amazing customer service! To be able to provide the best services, we need to relax and unwind from such a busy and stressful time of year.
We often overlook the importance of taking vacations! According to New York Times studies, vacations are lot more beneficial than we might think. Below are some benefits of taking time off of work to relax and reboot.
- Vacation time is good for our physical health. Studies show that a person that takes a vacation every two years compared to every six years has a lower chance of developing coronary disease or having a heart attack.
- Job productivity is increased upon our return to work. The human body is not designed to work continuously but to pulse between working and recovering energy.
- Relationships between family members are brought closer. The change of scene and atmosphere encourages more communication and bonding time.
- Vacations help lower the chance of us getting burned out by our jobs. The time away from our usual daily life will keep us from letting the motivation and fire die inside.
This year, for Christmas, my husband and I decided to take a trip to the beautiful Oregon coast with few of our closest family and friends. We had the most amazing time! Just strolling along the beach with the sound of waves was so amazingly calming! Exploring the town and visiting local favorites was so great! Honestly, it was just amazing to get away from home and relax. That’s exactly what we were doing. When we got home we definitely felt refreshed and ready to work hard to accomplish our goals! Take a vacation for yourself! It will be very beneficial for you!
