Calendars are an important part of life to help us schedule time off from time to time. Studies have shown that people need regular breaks to stay productive and to do more in less time.
But some of us are so focused on work that we forget to take time off if we don’t put it on the schedule and that may seem absurd or very orderly, but it can be necessary for our well-being and efficiency.
