I need a holiday, all this endless work and stress, so I'm going to try and prise myself from my desk for a week and take the family away somewhere.

That I expect would be a good week but when it's over how long will I remain recharged? Usually a holiday seems like a distant memory after about 1.5 days back at work. There's a bit of me that thinks its just an expensive, frivolous thing to do.

What's your experience? Do holidays have any long-term benefit?
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
