Ever thought about taking six months or a year off of work . . . a sabbatical, a mini-retirement, a pre-midlife crisis, or whatever? Here's the best time to do it.
According to a new study, the best age to take a long extended break from work is . . . 38.
That's the age where you're still young, but well enough established in your job that you won't completely derail your career by taking time off. You'll also have gone on a few trips by then, so you'll know where you want to travel.
It's also when . . . in theory, at least . . . you're finally financially secure enough to withstand a period of no income.
This all sounds pretty romanticized, which is why most people won't do it. 70% of people say they'd love to take an extended break from work . . . but only 5% think they realistically ever will. (Daily Mail)
