The world we live in is a wonderful place. No matter where you turn, there are new sights to see, new people to meet, new stories to hear, and new foods to eat. There are cities lit up bright all through the night, and secluded sandy beaches drenched in sunlight. I’ve been lucky to experience so much of it with my own two eyes – so now I’m making it my mission to urge others to try it on for size. Sadly, research shows that so many people don’t take enough time off work. In fact, one third of Britain’s working population are not taking their total annual leave allowance, and instead opting to stay in the office. This is shocking behaviour, which is detrimental to both the health of the individuals and the success of the businesses where they work. Having a busy career doesn't mean that you can't live your life to the fullest. I know this better than most. It’s important to prepare for the demands of the everyday, but it’s equally as crucial to enjoy life.
