Employees find it 'difficult to switch off from work'
People often find it difficult to switch off from work when they go on holiday and therefore do not get the chance to have a proper break, it has been claimed.

According to psychologist Mo Shapiro, many employees do not prepare themselves for a break as they are still thinking and worrying about their job when they leave the office.

She stated that people should "really make a conscious effort to say: 'work's gone and now I'm just going to get into holiday mode'".

To do this they could ensure that they leave out of office messages and know who their clients will be talking to in their absence to put their mind at rest.

Research carried out by OnePoll on behalf of Keycamp discovered that 67 per cent of people consider their lives to be stressful and 25 per cent say that the only time they feel relaxed is when they are on holiday.
