Do you take all your vacation time? A recent survey shows that Americans lose vacation days.

Taking time off from work is healthy - it's kind of like cleaning out your computer! Unfortunately, a lot of Americans only use a little more that half their vacation!

According to ABC News:

A new survey conducted by Harris Interactive for Glassdoor shows the average American worker doesn’t use nearly all of her vacation days.

American workers who receive time off from work were questioned about how much vacation time they’ve taken in the past 12 months and if they’ve worked during their time off, according to the survey

 

I know it can be hard to find the time to take a vacation from work, but as far as I'm concerned losing vacation is like telling your employer "Oh, no...please I don't really need that paycheck."
