Relaxation Deprivation When was the last time you watched the clouds pass by or sat under the stars and simply drank in the night? When was the last time you did absolutely nothing? Under pressure to succeed and stay competitive – how do we just STOP and smell the roses? American workers get about 14 days of vacation a year and a third of us don’t use all of it. And if we do, we often can’t leave work behind completely... Relaxation Deprivation - on The Sound of Ideas®.
