MANILA, Philippines – According to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), more than 8.1 million Filipinos worked excessively long hours in 2015.

Stress and fatigue from work could trigger serious health problems, that will in turn affect one’s productivity and overall well-being.

Studies have shown that taking time off from work has physical, mental and emotional benefits. More often than not, employees come back fully recharged, inspired, and even more productive.

That’s why long weekends and non-working holidays are a godsend. Apart from getting a break from the everyday grind, it’s an opportunity to travel and enjoy a different view besides the laptop screen.

If you’re thinking of or planning your next trip, have these packing essentials handy to avoid the unnecessary stress of forgetting the important things or being told that your baggage is overweight.
