When’s the last time you had a real vacation—like a don’t-check-your-email, don’t-take-a-phone-call, don’t-take-work-with-you kind of break? Unfortunately, far too many people not only don’t do that, they leave vacation time on the table—meaning they don’t even take a benefit that they’re entitled to. Take this single statistic as an example: People who work left 662 million vacation days on the table in 2016 alone.
All that lost vacation time can leave people feeling work out and resentful. There’s an option, though, that can be restorative: a sabbatical. A sabbatical is an unpaid time away from work, lasting anywhere from a few weeks to a few months—and sometimes even longer.
Most of the time, sabbaticals are unpaid, meaning you have to save for it or find other sources of income to cover your time off. What else do you need to know about sabbaticals? This graphic explains them.
