Do you take all your vacation time from work? Looks like most Americans don't.

A recent survey from, says that the average American employee has over a week’s worth of paid vacation days left that are not used at the end of each year! To be exact, it's actually 6 days and 96 minutes!

I've always heard in America we "Live to work", other countries like Australia and many European countries say they "Work to live".  Those words speak volumes. I love my job, but I love my time off too! Besides, taking vacation time is healthy for you. It's a fact that employees are more productive when they have a chance to defrag.

So, what to learn from this survey? Take you're vacation time and chill! Remember, you earned those days, so USE them don't lose them!

Do you usually lose a few vacation days every year?
