10 Signs You’re Overworked and Need a Vacation

Being overworked, overstressed and overcommitted is, unfortunately, the American way. But, that doesn’t mean it’s the best way.

A 2013 study found that women who vacation twice a year have fewer heart problems, while men who forfeited their PTO days had a 20 percent greater chance of actually dying (!!!).

Being cranky and stressed isn’t good for anyone. So, if you have one or more of the signs below, you need a vacation — ASAP.
