Struggling over whether you should work this weekend or go to a baseball game with your family or friends? New research shows that the guilt we experience when we leave our work behind to have fun passes as quickly as it appears. However, regrets over missed opportunities to enjoy ourselves never fade. In fact, they increase over time. According to researchers, giving in to temptation all the time can be harmful, but you will be happier in the long run if you look at the big picture when choosing between work and play. The key, they say, is to think about what you will regret in the future. Give yourself permission to take time off and to enjoy well-earned vacations with your family and loved ones.
