Guidelines to taking a vacation - A Moment with Rabbi Avigdor Miller Zt"l #551
Parshas Vayigash 5781


What are some guidelines to determine when someone needs a vacation, or when it's merely a counsel of the yetzer hara?


For that, each person's case must be individually considered; it would be foolhardy for me to give a general advice.

Do you enjoy your work? Then you don't need a vacation. A vacation actually doesn't mean anything if you are worn out, because two weeks is going to be spent in hectic traveling, in unaccustomed circumstances.

If you want a vacation to remain home and to sleep all day long, and not to travel – maybe! But vacation to go someplace, besides spending a lot of money that you need, you're going to be in unaccustomed places, you'll overeat in hotels, and you'll be on the go...That's not a vacation, it's just a cliché. You're only following in the footsteps of the herd and you'll come back dead tired to begin your work again.

So most people would be better off if they don't take any of these vacations. If a person does need a vacation, let him remain home and sleep it up for two weeks; then he'll come back with a new zest to work.

Of course nobody will listen to this, but I'm saying it anyhow.

Good Shabbos To All
