It’s never too early to start planning your holidays, even if the New Year’s festivities are still ringing in your ear or you’re still finding bits of Chrissie lunch as you floss.

And this still leaves you with five days of unused annual leave to take this year, perhaps around your state or territory’s particular holidays.
Statistics show that the average Australian works 10% longer than his UK counterpart (1,538), and perhaps surprisingly, 20% more than the average worker in Germany (1,386).
Perhaps keep this in mind if you feel guilty about planning your next break when week two of the new year has just ticked over.
