Steal these work tricks from Europe, and maybe we can all be a bit happier this year

As Americans, we have some unhealthy work habits. We work through our vacation days and wolf down lunch at our desks in an effort to be the best we can at our jobs. But maybe we can be good at our jobs without burning ourselves out all the time? Here are the work habits we could stand to steal from the Europeans:

  • Set limits – Employees in the European Union can’t work more than 48 hours a week. Give yourself a more reasonable work schedule.
  • Take your vacation days – Don’t work through them like you did last year. We get the fewest vacation days anyway, so we might as well use them!
  • Time off doesn’t have to mean vacation – If you have days off, it can be just as rewarding to take a day for yourself or volunteer somewhere.
  • LEAVE the office – Give yourself a generous lunch break and actually step away from your desk to do it.
