America’s vacation deprivation shortchanges the time we invest in our personal relationships, undermines our performance at work, and threatens our health and well-being. Still, Americans are choosing work martyrdom over time off and see vacation as a nice-to-have. Project: Time Off wants Americans to reclaim their vacation days, travel the country, and reap the benefits of a true break. Launched in 2014, our mission is to prove the value and necessity of taking vacation.
