Read the following passage and answer questions 17– 25.
When is a Holiday really a Holiday?
By Jahmahl Goldsmith.
Don’t you just love holidays? It doesn’t matter if it is a long weekend, a week or longer,
it gives everyone something to look forward to. Many people love to get away from their
normal routines. Some choose to go fishing, others like adventurous holidays or exploring
somewhere new while others prefer a place to relax, put their feet up and read a good
book. Whether it’s an overseas destination, somewhere in Australia or just your local
neighbourhood, holidays give us time out!
But more and more, people are finding it harder to really take a break. Work is not
something that is left at the office anymore, now that we live in a digital age. Email has the
capacity to imprison the innocent worker who just wants to get the job done. With smart
phones, work remains virtually in the palm of our hands.
The challenge is to let it go, to wait until the holiday is over before thinking about work
and just enjoy a real break. It is important to get the balance of work and play right. While
it feels very satisfying to get the job done, it is an even better feeling to unwind with family
and friends. So, enjoy holiday breaks and make the most of them!
