Taking a Break

Even in these rough economic times, Anna Stolley Persky reports that taking a vacation is still a good thing.

The necessity of relaxation doesn’t change based upon the economic climate,” says Manning, a principal at Manning Sossamon. “The only difference may be how lavish that retreat is.”

However, leaner staffing due to layoffs may mean more difficulties scheduling time off and some question whether taking advantage of cheap fares might be a "good way to get yourself fired."

If you decide to take a vacation, Wall Street Journal columnist Ben Worthen offers some tips, including: make sure there's wireless Internet where ever you go, forward office calls to your Blackberry, and bring important work documents along. Sure makes a vacation sound a lot like, well, work.
