How Much PTO Women Took in 2009

Gimme a Break! Vacation Days in 2009

We work hard for our money, honey! And boy do we ever deserve those days off! It seems the unstable economy and rocky job security may have kept most of us in our desk chairs and out of the spa this year. Thirty-four percent of you only took five to 10 vacation days in 2009, followed by 29 percent who jetted out of the workplace for 10 days and another 29 percent of you who used up 10 to 20 days. The most shocking stat? Eight percent of you said you didn't take any days off this whole year!

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is paramount for long-term job happiness and your mental, emotional and physical health, so if you are part of the crowd that stayed glued to your computer take note: 2010 is just around the corner. Use your earned vacation days to reward yourself, de-stress and do what you want to do. It's not selfish. You earned it.
