Vacation Days

Do You Get Anxious on Your Days Off?

I was talking to a bunch of people who admitted feeling some anxiety when they take some paid time off. It can be hard to transition from work mode into vacation mode when you're used to the daily grind. What about you — do you get anxious on your vacation days?

Absolutely not. I work really hard the 2 weeks before I take any vacation to finish up projects or start passing off ongoing items to co-workers. So perhaps I'm anxious before a vacation and after I return, but never while I'm gone.

I get anxious the day before I head back to work after a vacation; don't want to deal with my in-box!!

Nope. I'm like auntiemay, only thinking of going back to work makes me anxious. Vacation days were meant to be used and I don't feel bad at all.

I get anxious because A) I know that one of my co-workers is going to end up calling me and I am going to have to have to walk them through some process and B) I know that I will have an inbox FULL of emails and paperwork to catch up on when I get back to the office after vacation.

I only feel anxious when I think about how much work I will need to catch up on when I get back!

I really despise days off, isn't that horrible? I feel like I could be doing anything but relaxing. . .
