Balance is good

“Balance is good!”

As I stepped out on the edge of Bright Angel Point Trail with the springs 3,000 feet below, this thought entered my mind. I felt like I was at the edge of the world, looking over the Grand Canyon on the North Rim — it literally took my breath away!

Balance in life is important, and nothing gets you closer to your family than a cross-country road trip to Colorado, Utah, and Arizona visiting our beautiful national parks!

We all need time to get away, reflect, and recharge. It has taken me many years to understand this personally.

Research shows that instead of hindering performance, vacations actually increase productivity. Humans are simply more productive when rested. According to Forbes, researcher Mark Rosekind found that the positive effects of a vacation can increase performance by 80%.

It is important that we all take a break and enjoy our vacations and time away. This helps us recharge, keeping us focused in the long run. So let’s hear it for PTO!
