Gone are the days when we were in school and got two or more weeks off at holiday time to celebrate and recuperate.

If you’re a freelancer or an entrepreneur or just really busy at your job, you may not be able to take off more than a day or two.
But everyone needs some downtime and a chance to reconnect with family and friends. Taking at least a couple days off at the end of the year can help you feel refreshed and ready for the next one.
