For Employee Wellbeing, Engagement Trumps Time Off

It’s easy to think of vacation and time off as the best way to increase employee well-being, but, in fact, in the long run, engagement is much more important to an employee’s well-being than the amount of time they have off of work.

The employee that is highly engaged at work, frequently enjoys a blurring of the distinction between work and play, and often finds themselves energized by things that occur at work rather than de-energized or depleted.

In addition, numerous serious research studies have shown that the more often people find themselves in the state of “flow”, (where they are so entirely consumed in what is happening in the moment that they lose all sense of time and of the other activities going on around them), the happier they are.

Coaching Tip:
Forget about long vacations, and consider what changes you can make to move more in the direction of “I love my work” and “I get a chance to do my best work every day.”

Go for more “flow.”
