Take a Vacation! Franchising May Give You the Way
Posted on Thursday, June 27th 2019

In today’s increasingly technological world, digitization of work makes us feel that we need to be “always available” to demands from our jobs. The constant need to check email on your phone after hours, on weekends and even while on vacation puts a tremendous amount of pressure on employees to always be reachable. This mentality is no way to live your life! Instead, it’s time to make a change and invest in franchising — and your happiness!

Americans are Short-Changing Themselves.

The stress to always stay connected to work means that many Americans are actually opting to not take vacations at all! A recent study reported that 47 percent of Americans didn’t take all of their vacation time, and 21 percent left more than 5 vacation days on the table in 2018. The main reasons cited for this lack of time off were: Relaxation will lead to more stress (too many deadlines and a fear of built-up work). The employer disapproves (being pressured to not take vacation or fear that the request for time off won’t be approved). It’s too hard to unplug (48 percent check email while on vacation). It will derail their career (14 percent believe not using vacation days increases chances for advancement).

This mindset of America being a “No-Vacation Nation” is a toxic one. Taking time away from work is vital to living a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle. Freedom to take your dream vacation is just one more reason to invest in a reputable franchise such as Fish Window Cleaning.

Freedom of Small-Business Ownership

Becoming a small-business owner takes a tremendous amount of effort and hard work. However, once an operation has been established, often the owner can enjoy a bit of freedom. This is frequently the case for FISH franchisees. The key to being able to take that dream vacation is establishing a trustworthy staff and putting solid operational procedures in place. Once that has been done, many find they have the time, funds, and means, to take that vacation they’ve always dreamed of.

Vacation Equals Mental Health.

Here’s why all this matters: People can swear up and down that they don’t need a vacation or that they’re energized by their work, but their collective mental and physical health says otherwise. The list of benefits of taking vacation time is long. It improves your physical health by relieving stress that can contribute to heart disease, high blood pressure and many other ailments. Neuroscientists have found that vacation improves mental health, too because it lessens our exposure to the stress hormone cortisol, a major contributing factor to anxiety and depression. Americans who “make time for regular trips” also report greater well-being, according to a Gallup study. Additionally, studies show that family relationships benefit from regular vacations as well. Vacation even helps boost mental power. Upon returning from vacation, experts say, workers are often more focused and productive.

Think you could use a new challenge, an exciting change of pace, and, of course, a vacation? A FISH franchise could give you the control over your work and vacation time that could make a big difference in your life.
