News to Me: Paid Time Off While You Break It Off?

Breakups can often be debilitating, and while it's easy to tell our friends that we don't feel like going out, it's a lot more difficult to get out of going to work, even if your breakup does feel a lot like having the flu. But now, a Japanese marketing firm called Hime & Company is offering "heartbreak leave" for its employees going through difficult breakups. According to Reuters:

Staff aged 24 years or younger can take one day off per year, while those between 25 and 29 can take two days off and those older can take three days off, the company said.

While I don't think this company's idea will be very catching, I do like that it acknowledges the bigger mental health issues we all deal with. So what do you all think? Is this is a neat concept or a little over the top?
