No Leave No Life

Are you one of the millions of Australian workers who has weeks of annual leave unused?

We Aussies have one of the highest levels of not taking annual leave in the world – and it is not good for us!


Annual leave is essential for health and well being.  It allows us to relax and wind down, to rest and recharge.  It allows us to work better when we return because we are sharper and more able to deal with what life and our work throws at us.

It is more difficult to get away when you own your own business, but it is actually MORE essential you do it, because, especially if you are a solo trader, there is only you.  And it can be managed.

While it may not be possible to take the grand vacation of 6 -12 weeks right now in your business, it is possible to take a day and make it a long weekend.  It is possible to top and tail the Easter break and make it a week break.  It is possible to add a day to a public holiday and the world will not fall apart.

Doing this means you can escape for a few precious days.  Forward planning helps as flights tend to go quickly around holiday breaks, and that’s where a Personal Travelmanager comes in.  Give me a call and I can do all the planning for you.  It saves your precious time, I can find all the good deals and suggest ways to maximise your time away from work.

Think places no more than 3-4 hours flight away.  And from the east coast that includes South Pacific Islands and New Zealand as well as almost all of Australia.  From Adelaide there are direct flights of less than 3 hours to Cairns, Darwin and Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Alice Springs and Tasmania are all within reach.

This year the best Christmas present you can give yourself and your family is the gift of time.  Time spent with them, making memories you will have forever.  Time to relax and rejuvenate.  Do it for your health.  Do it for your family.  Do it for your sanity.  Do it because you deserve it.  And have a wonderful Christmas New year break.
