It's a familiar story, the long awaited holiday is finally on the horizon, but you have a million things to do before you can log-off. The pre-holiday stress of getting everything done before you jet off surely takes away some benefit of having a break which is vitally important for physical and mental wellbeing. 

Beverly Landais has put together five top tips for preparing for a holiday to reduce this stress and to allow employees to make the most of their holiday when they are on it, in summary:

  • Prepare for your holiday as you would a work critical matter
  • Try 'time chunking' to get organised before you go
  • Share your plans with colleagues and clients well in advance
  • Get savvy with technology to allow you to switch off
  • Choose how you focus the mind while you're away
