How much vacation time do you use?
According to a Glassdoor survey, the average U.S. worker has only used HALF of their eligible vacation time during the past 12 months.
Fact: The typical U.S. worker at a private company is awarded 10 days of paid vacation and 6 paid holidays. In France and England, employees are given up to 30 vacation days, respectively.
The top reasons for not taking vacation time:
No one else can do our job, a fear of getting behind and we are afraid of losing our job.
Over half (61%) of us who take time off are ‘still working during vacation’… because of always being connected by our smartphones, tablet computers and laptops.

Also, apples, soup, beans, water even pickles help control your appetite.
